Proposed Programme

The 150th Anniversary of Eudunda
Colin Thiele’s 100th Birthday

The main celebrations have been postponed until 2021, due to COVID-19, so the listing below is not accurate.
Please check out the video post from Samuel on where things are at (as of June 2020).

If you have any ideas please feel free to contact us and especially do so if you can help us, either financially, physically, or both.

The listing below is for historical records of what was planned, and we hope to bring many of these items to the 2021 event.
Once the Committee has been able to regroup and start planning again we will refresh this list.

*The Eudunda Family Heritage Gallery & Eudunda RSL hope to remain open every day*
* ART Exhibitions hope to be open daily *
