Welcome to 2018. As my old grandfather used to say “may you prosper and your sheep never get the foot rot!” Before you plan your year – weddings, overseas trips or holidays at home or in far flung places, check out the dates of Adelaide’s Record Fairs for 2018. This will save embarrassment and red faces if you find you have double booked on special dates. You know where you want to be.
The big three dates are the two fairs in Semaphore – on Easter Monday and the Monday of the long weekend in October – and Music Palooza’s two day fair now scheduled in August with a new venue yet to be confirmed. Watch this space.
In between time there are ten other record fairs/events to keep you match fit for dedicated crate digging. It takes time, energy and moula. But someone has got to do it and it might as well be you. The Prospect Record Fair has now transferred to a new venue at the civilised Walkerville RSL at 98 Walkerville terrace.
So there are plenty of options to pick up some special gems over the year. Happy hunting.
