The promenade overlooks the River Torrens and connects King William Road and the Riverbank Footbridge, linking Festival Theatre and Dunstan Playhouse, providing an interesting way to access to all venues.
For each year, three stars are added to the walkway. In addition to the public choice, two more stars are selected by Adelaide Festival Centre Trust (AFCT) and a panel of arts critics. Past recipients include Roy Orbison, Cold Chisel, Olivia Newton-John, Dame Edna Everage, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett, Tim Minchin, Paul Kelly, Guy Sebastian and Kate Ceberano.
The public vote is hotly contested every year. Thank you to the thousands of Australians who voted online for their favourite Adelaide Festival Centre performers. Also, many thanks to the arts panel for their industry knowledge in awarding the prestigious Critics’ Choice star, and Adelaide Festival Centre staff for their passionate debates in awarding the distinguished AFCT Choice.

The Black Sorrows' Saint Georges Road
“It's an incredible honour to receive the People's Choice Vote this year. Adelaide has always been a fantastic supporter of the arts and I'm humbled to be recognised in this way. To be amongst some amazing past winners... it means a lot to me.”

The Boss Lady Tour
“I am thrilled to receive a Walk of Fame star from Adelaide Festival Centre! I had the best time performing The Boss Lady Tour at Festival Theatre and I can’t wait to visit again to see my name in lights overlooking the Karrawirra Parri / River Torrens.”
Nigel LevingsCritics' Choice
Watershed: The Death of Dr Duncan
“I believe that the best lighting design is so totally integrated into a production that the audience cannot really pick the lighting from the performance. Thank you for recognising my humble contribution to nearly 200 productions that I have lit at the Adelaide Festival Centre.”
