Festival of Darkness 2022

Festival of Darkness 2022 NOLA Adelaide

Sunday, 12th June 2022 to

12:00 pm - 11:45 pm

It’s the deep mid-winter and at The Stag Public House and NOLA Adelaide that can mean only one thing: its time once again to celebrate our Festival Of Darkness.

For one day only, across two massive sessions we’ll be showcasing 18 of our favourite independent Australian breweries and pouring all things dark, malted and imperial. We’ll have brewers pouring their own beers and talking you through all things new, barrel-aged and everything in between and then of course Adelaide’s best live music playing at both venues for you to dance the night away at the Festival of Darkness Afterparty.

Last year’s event sold out, so run, don’t walk to get your ticket and avoid disappointment!
