The Spirit Festival is an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and cultural festival featuring traditional ceremonies and contemporary dance, live music, workshops, forums, and a visual art fair. The event is alcohol free and is promoted as a family friendly event.
This festival is a low impact event, following Adelaide City Council's Noise Mitigation Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The staging positioning and orientation are designed to have the least impact on residents, with the organiser ensuring residents and businesses are aware of the event well in advance, as per the Noise Mitigation SOPs. The event hours are consistent with a family event.
