Gluttony takes over Croydon this April

From Wednesday 6 April to Sunday 10 April 2022, Croydon Park will be transformed into a feast for the senses for lovers of the arts, food and wine, aptly named ‘Gluttony’.

Gluttony at Croydon Park will be a condensed version of its Adelaide counterpart, squeezing the best acts, food and festivities into a five-day extravaganza.

Cr Mike Symon, Mayor of Maroondah, is thrilled to add Gluttony to Maroondah’s diverse arts and entertainment calendar for 2022.

“We are so excited to announce that Maroondah is the first Victorian Council to host Gluttony,” Cr Symon said.

“Gluttony will be a fabulous opportunity to have a widely popular, national, one-of-a-kind experience in our own backyard.

“Every ticket purchased supports artists, arts workers and the arts and events industries, which are critical to the creative spirit and progress of our Council and indeed our festival state,” he said.

Gluttony’s history

Popping up annually in Adelaide’s east parklands since 2011, Gluttony has cultivated a reputation as being one of the top events of the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

In addition to the 130+ fabulous Fringe acts that perform, Gluttony also hosts dining precincts that offer a diverse range of delicious cuisines, bars serving fine wines, local beer and top-shelf spirits, family-friendly activities, interactive installations, and multiple areas to relax in their open-air party in the park.

Gluttony is currently in full-swing in Adelaide, opening its doors and tent on Sunday 18 February. The festival will wrap on Sunday 20 March and will then pack up and truck itself over to Croydon.
