Mama Susan’s is a month-long activation of the former bus depot site at 111-117 Franklin Street, Adelaide. The focus of the event will be creating a unique atmosphere centred around foods of the world, while also showcasing South Australian beverages, artists, musicians, and artisans.
Twelve or more South Australian vendors who will trade for a portion or whole of the event period.
Vendors will be selected by a curated expression of interest process of South Australia operators, whilst also approaching certain businesses, such as operators from the Central Markets and surrounding areas.
Operators will be those who own and operate bricks and mortar businesses (ie, restaurateurs).
Infrastructure for the food vendors will be purpose built temporary kitchens, not marquees or traditional single day food festival infrastructure.
The event organisers will work with each operator to tailor a menu and offering for each of the operators that is unique to the event and not something that is normally on offer.
Up to 18 South Australian beverage producers will be showcased throughout the event.
All beverages available will be South Australian products all curated to showcase a selection of the best the state has to offer.
The focus will be on wine to compliment the food offering, however beer, spirits and non-alcoholic options will also be available.
Drinks will be served in re-usable glassware which will be addressed in the event’s COVID Management Plan.
The live music program will support over 60 South Australian artists.
With a focus on atmospheric music rather than large-scale concerts, the live music program will provide the supplementary entertainment for people to enjoy while they dine.
The genres of music on offer will be broad and varied with the majority being a mixture of live electronic, jazz, acoustic and DJ.
The markets of Mama Susan’s are to be complimentary to the other offerings of the venue and intermittently placed throughout the site.
Showcasing only South Australian artisan wares and produce.
The markets may take on a Christmas theme for the Christmas holiday period.
Supporting South Australia producers and providing a greater opportunity for Christmas shoppers in the city is the purpose of the initiative.
The program of Mama Susan’s outside of the music and markets is around showcasing visual arts and showcasing South Australia.
A series of discussions, presentations and showcases from participants in the event or other interesting South Australian’s and their businesses.
Beverage producers hosting tastings and discussions about their products, artisans discussing the process of creating their wares or a thought-provoking discussion panel.
The purpose of this program is to provide entertainment for visitors and a platform for participants to showcase themselves.
