Ninety days of summer fun

Enjoy 90 days of great summer entertainment from Encore, the City of Onkaparinga’s exciting program of pop-up hospitality and lifestyle experiences.

Encore brings you a long summer of music, markets, food and drink in the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast region and, for the first time, in Moana and the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships.

Old summer favourites are back – the SandBAR and TJS Twilight Markets at Christies Beach, Pizzateca Beach at Aldinga Beach and the Cabana Club at Port Noarlunga.

New fun this year includes outdoor eats, drinks and entertainment at No Bad Days in Moana, markets and cultural events at Summer in the Square in Willunga, and wellbeing and lifestyle activities in upscale tipis in McLaren Vale.

Not only has Encore expanded with new locations and offerings for summer, it will also be introducing a Winter Villages and After Dark program in 2023.
