Emu Ridge is participating in the Kangaroo Island 2016 ART FEASTival with 4 exciting events. We hope you are able to visit and enjoy!
ART FEASTival takes place in September and October this year, the first two months of spring. It fills galleries, cafés and other venues across the island with a feast for the senses: a perfect blend of art, music, food, beverages and more. Emerging and established artists put forward offerings, with community art sitting alongside works by artists of international renown.
ART FEASTival is launched at a community event on the very first day of spring, Thursday 1 September, at the iconic Willowbrook woolshed of KI Tru Thai, and winds up on Saturday 29 October with a relaxed evening of local art, music, food, wine and ciders: a fun finale for families and friends alike at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus.

Opening every day from 9.00am to 2.00pm, extended hours over peak times open or by appointment.
