It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Adelaide is embracing the Christmas festivities with a long list of Christmas Adelaide carols events throughout December. Whether you are a local Adelaide family, new in town or just visiting you are bound to find some Christmas carols in Adelaide 2022 that will interest your children or teenagers (even those that tell you they are too old for Christmas now!).
The Christmas carol events we have found are all family friendly and don’t finish too late at night so you can still get the little ones to bed on time. You can either choose to pack a picnic or purchase food from food vans or potentially grab a snag and support a local community group. Don’t forget to take a Christmas candle along to the night-time events.
Here is our list of the biggest and brightest Christmas carols in Adelaide. We have also found plenty of other Adelaide Christmas events around town as well.
