Kangaroo Island Events

Kangaroo Island doesn't hold events. It embraces them!

Kangaroo Island events are broad, with festivals that celebrate the Island's unique blend of food, wine, art and community spirit.

The Island celebrates its very own art, food and wine in events, exhibitions and performances across the island, in galleries, cafes, shearing sheds, artists’ studios and more. There are regular Markets held in both Penneshaw and Kingscote, as well as the KI Easter Art Exhibition.

Other festivals include the Kangaroo Island Marathon and WILDRoo, and Bush Festival.  The Sealink Kangaroo Island Cup Carnival is one not to be missed - spread over two huge days of racing, the Dudley Wines Kangaroo Island Cup is fast becoming the Island’s biggest party.
