For over 40 years, Something on Saturday has enchanted thousands of children with memorable live performances and craft workshops during the winter months. In 2019, this family favourite will become an annual program of carefully curated events especially for young people.
From performances to exhibitions and hands on arts and crafts, this is every child’s chance to experience the transformative world of the arts.
Stay tuned – we’ll be launching the rest of the DreamBIG Children's Festival families program in February and will release the second half Something on Saturday in May 2019!
Kids Corner Workshops
For many of our Something on Saturday events we host FREE workshops themed around the performance. Our Kids Corner Workshops are funded by the Adelaide Festival Centre Foundation. The Foundation raises funds for projects that inspire young people through the arts. For this reason workshops are free.
The Children’s University
All Something on Saturday performances are validated by Children’ University Adelaide. In order to receive a stamp in your Passport to Learning for any performances, members must complete a Performance Review. For more information visit the Children’s University Australia website and search for Adelaide Festival Centre.
Something on Saturday’s music program is contributing to the vibrancy of Adelaide’s music culture for children and their families. We are proud to support the designation of Adelaide as a UNESCO City of Music!
