NPSP’s exciting calendar of events to kick off an action-packed 2023
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters’ 2023 events calendar has launched into gear with an exciting range of experiences, including elite sporting events.
On Friday, January 20, our City will be abuzz with energy and colour when thousands of spectators descend on Adelaide’s premier main street, The Parade, to soak up the adrenalin and atmosphere of Stage 3 of the Tour Down Under.
Mayor Robert Bria said Stage 3 will not only be an important event for cycling lovers, but it also provides a boost to the local economy, while shining a national and international spotlight on Adelaide’s East.
The peloton will be leaving The Parade at 11.30am and heading east to climb Norton Summit, Checkers Hill and Corkscrew Road before finishing in Campbelltown.
“After a two-year break, there is guaranteed to be an electric atmosphere, and it is an excellent opportunity to showcase parts of our stunning and vibrant City to the world,” Mayor Bria said.
The City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is also hosting an array of Australia Day events on 26 January with a Citizenship Ceremony, Community BBQ and Australia Day Awards on St Peters Street.
“The Citizenship Ceremony is a highly anticipated event for new Australians who have chosen our City as their new home,” Mayor Bria said.
“It is also an opportunity to publicly acknowledge and thank local citizens who have gone above and beyond to help their local community and are presented with an Australia Day Award.”
For younger members of the community, Norwood Swimming Centre is hosting a classic Australia Day pool party with music, games and a sausage sizzle.
“In February, March and April, the Council’s celebrated Concerts in the Park series are once again returning, with music lovers relishing the opportunity to enjoy the sunset to a soundtrack of jazz, melodies and symphonies in some of our beautiful parks.
In March, St Peters Fair at Linde Reserve, will serve up a feast of fun for families and friends with live music, delicious food, and an oval full of free children’s entertainment.
The following month, Norwood Oval will host two matches as part of the AFL Gather Round with Gold Coast and Fremantle playing on Friday, 14 April and Greater Western Sydney taking on Hawthorn on Sunday 16 April.
“The Council has a solid reputation for its diverse range of activities for the community and this year we are thrilled that this also includes a variety of elite sporting events for both cycling and footy fans.”
