Kangaroo Island Events

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

With festivals celebrating the Island's unique blend of arts, food, wine 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 Farmers Markets and Island Community Markets as well as the annual Easter Art Exhibition and Kangaroo Island Art Feast.

Other festivals include the Kangaroo Island Planting Festival, the Kangaroo Island Marathon, The Gourmet Gallop, plus concerts, agricultural shows and gala days. Don't miss the SEALINK Kangaroo Island Cup Carnival - spread over two huge days of racing, the SEALINK Kangaroo Island Cup is fast becoming the Island’s biggest party.
