South Australia’s History Festival

Welcome to South Australia’s History Festival
1-31 May 2022

South Australia’s History Festival is an annual statewide event exploring South Australia’s history.

Held throughout May each year, the History Festival explores the state’s places and spaces, stories, collections and ideas that make us who we are.

One of South Australia’s largest open-access community events, the History Festival program features hundreds of events ranging from talks to tours, walks to workshops and exhibitions to special events.

Events happen anywhere: urban and rural, towns, cities and suburbs; in museums and libraries; in boats, trains and buses and mysterious buildings; on the street, by the beach and in nature.

Hear the latest research and tales of the unusual and unknown; from amazing experts to local guides. With hundreds of events to choose from, there’s something for curious minds of all ages.


2022 theme: Reimagine

In 2022, the History Festival is exploring the theme ‘reimagine’. The theme represents an opportunity to be bold and reimagine your events in terms of content as well as presentation. We invite event organisers to plan events around this idea in any way you choose.
