Will access to the Pioneer Women’s Memorial Gardens be restricted during the event?

The only restrictions will be during the event set-up and pull-down periods when fencing is required to establish safe work areas for the building of infrastructure such as stages and shade sails.

During the event days the park will have up to 2000 people attending the event which may cause some restrictions for public wanting to pass through that area of the gardens.

Will it cost to attend the event?

All elements of the Adelaide Writers’ Week are free to attend.

How will the Park Lands be protected during their stay?

The Adelaide Writers’ Week event will be responsible for minimising impacts on the Park Lands by following Adelaide City Council’s Standard Operating Procedures for Events in the Park Lands. 

The event will be responsible for restoring the park to its original condition at the end of the event.

Event organisers have committed to undertaking the following Park Land protection measures:
•    Roads and sealed surfaces to be used for vehicle access wherever possible.
•    Barriers erected around any significant trees or landmarks.
•    Any sensitive turf areas may be excluded from vehicle entry.
•    Staff on site to enforce protection of park.
•    Track matting to be used where necessary.

Can I expect noise where I live?

The event does include some amplified sound for talks and announcements. Noise levels are not expected to cause any issues in the area; however the Adelaide Festival will have a noise mitigation plan in place for the Adelaide Writers’ Week event.

Is parking available at the event site?

No public parking is provided within the event site; however there are many parking options within easy walking distance of the event site. The event location is also easily accessible by a range of public transport.
