Walk of Fame

Honouring the diverse and talented artists who have graced the venues of Adelaide Festival Centre since it opened in 1973.

Adelaide’s Walk of Fame is an open-air promenade that connects King William Road with the Adelaide Riverbank Footbridge and links the Festival Theatre with the Dunstan Playhouse and Space Theatre. Set against the angular shells of Adelaide Festival Centre, it overlooks the picturesque River Torrens and lights up the Riverbank precinct at night.

This star-studded walkway pays homage to the actors, dancers, singers and musicians, as well as playwrights, directors, designers, companies, and choreographers, who have taken part in performances at Adelaide Festival Centre across its almost 50-year history.

The Walk of Fame launched in 2017 with more than 130 artists named - three for each year since 1973 - under the categories of a Public Vote, Critics’ Choice and Adelaide Festival Centre Trust annual award.

It expands annually with three new stars added for each calendar year. Artists are selected from the list of talented professionals who have taken part in performances at Adelaide Festival Centre during year and determined by votes from each of the three above-named categories.

The accompanying Walk of Fame Exhibition in The Star Kitchen and Bar displays a selection of black and white portraits of these featured artists.
