A Tourrific Summer Tribute
On the evening of Tuesday 17 January 2017, the fabulous Tourrific Prospect Street Party returned to Prospect Road and was everything you would expect, and a bit more as Adelaide’s must-attend annual street party.
Inspired by the 2017 event theme - ‘Our Colourful Community’ 2017 Tourrific Prospect was a vivid and rich celebration of the dynamic, cultural diversity of our wonderful community. The street party showcased a vibrant entertainment program of bands, street performers and contemporary artists in a fringe style setting.Club5082 was back and louder and better than ever, with rock band enthusiasts treated to a lineup of grunge rock tribute bands all night long.
City of Prospect's one-of-a-kind free fiesta of music, dance, entertainment and fine food and drink, featured 80 curated acts, performing traditional and contemporary Aboriginal, African and Indian cultural music and dance displays all evening. Numerous pop-up street artists and buskers added to the bohemian feel of the evening, intriguing and surprising audiences all through the night.
Of course Tourrific Prospect isn’t just about performers, it’s also about fine hospitality from over sixty local businesses and an assortment of regional traders. As the sun went down, Tourrific Prospect guests were able to escape the heat and indulge in delicious and affordable global cuisine.
In 2017, Loopy Kids relocated to a temporary circuit adjacent Barker Gardens (due to the building of the exciting new Nova Cinema in Flora Tce) and with the expanded children’s zone kids they all had a great time cooling off in the sprinklers under shady trees. Face painting, puppets, and a striking jumping castle had
children entertained until well past their bedtime.
The 2017 Tourrific Prospect Street Party once again wowed our community and fans like no other street party in Adelaide. Together we experienced a feast of colour, sounds, cultures and entertainment and a family night to remember.
A very big thank you to all those who helped make our street party the best in Adelaide; our volunteers, sponsors, local businesses, stall holders, performers, artists and all of you who came out to spend time with family and friends, and made our street party absolutely Tourrific!
