Firstival is on again this July, when South Australia’s public libraries invite you to be a beginner again.

This year, you could ferment your first food, make your first beeswax wrap, hear your first Dreaming story, take your first sound bath or plant your first veggie patch — to name just a few of the firsts on offer.

Now in year two, Firstival is an initiative of LibrariesSA designed to affirm the brand’s curiosity-celebrating platform, For all who seek.

“We created Firstival to remind people to never stop starting new pursuits and to showcase the surprising range of things you can learn at your local library.”

The 2024 program is jam packed with hundreds of free and low-cost events happening all across the state. To check it out and book a few firsts, visit
