WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I REGISTER MY EVENT?

If your event is approved, you will receive an approval email pretty fast. Then it’s up to you to start promoting your event once the program is launched! The earlier the better, and keep us informed of any interesting news about your event or media coverage you might receive. We may be able to use it when we’re spreading the word about the Adelaide Food Fringe!

I RUN A RESTAURANT/CAFÉ/BAR/BREWERY/WINERY/VENUE/CLUB – HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?

Come up with a great idea (or even an average idea) to create a listing for an event you could register with the Adelaide Food Fringe. It could be something like a wine/beer tasting, coffee and cake appreciation morning, or your community club’s pasta, schnitty or goulash night. You can even host an exhibition, talk or cooking class. There is no limit to ideas to get people through your door via our program – we’re sure you can come up with something rad!

DO I NEED MY OWN MARKETING AND PROMOTION?

Yes, absolutely. It’s your responsibility to market your event and this is a key to your event’s success within the program. In addition to registering with the Adelaide Food Fringe you should make time to plan and  manage your own digital and print promotion of your event. Everyone who registers their event with the Adelaide Food Fringe will receive an email with the festival logo and digital assets, which you are encouraged to use in your marketing plan. The Adelaide Food Fringe will run an overarching marketing campaign for the festival program in general and not any specific event.
