Indofest 2017 Program

Indofest 2017 Program

Indofest 2017 is an extra special event as we celebrate our 10th anniversary! Wanting to capture the essence of the local Adelaide Indonesian community, this year’s Indofest has a special Kampung Indonesia theme. The word kampung is an Indonesian word meaning village or community. Our local Indonesian kampungs have been working tirelessly together to put together a vibrant, innovative and exciting program making this year’s Indofest a true standout!

To highlight the spirit of the local Adelaide Indonesian community, Indofest 2017 has seven main elements that are all interconnected. These elements are:

  1. Kampung Indonesia
  2. Main stage entertainment
  3. Melanglang Indonesia Children’s Activity Trail
  4. Alun-Alun Village Square
  5. Food Stalls
  6. Cooking Demonstrations
  7. Pasar Indofest – Indofest Market

Follow the links to find out more about the exciting activities of each element.
The Adelaide Indonesian community looks forward to welcoming you to Indofest 2017 on Saturday 1st October and say a big ‘terima kasih’ for your ongoing support over the past 10 years!
