The October record fairs are held in conjunction with the Semaphore Music Festival, which has been held annually since 2005 on the October Labour Day Long Weekend – www.semaphoremusicfestival.com .
The April record fairs are held on the same weekend as Record Store Day, a worldwide celebration of independent music shops – www.recordstoreday.com.au .
GOODWOOD SECONDHAND BOOK FAIR
The third Adelaide Independent Book Sellers Fair will take place during June or July 2017, at the Goodwood Community Centre, located behind Ginger’s Coffee Shop on the corner of Goodwood Road and Rosa Street.

The sixth Music Palooza Record, CD & DVD Sale will be held on the weekend of the 22nd & 23rd of July 2017, at a warehouse/market space in Bowden, just outside of the city. This is the biggest secondhand music event in Adelaide, for which some of Australia’s biggest music sellers made a special journey to participate. As the most prestigious secondhand music sale in South Australia all available tables are usually hired by traders, so late bookings can result in disappointment.
More than 50 interstate & local sellers usually participate, with 110 tables of stock – from bargains to collectables, featuring music in all styles – including records, CDs, music books & magazines, DVDs, memorabilia and more.
$5 admission – which covers both days – and FREE for children under 12 accompanied by an adult. 10am to 5pm both days.
