History Month 2022 Latest News

The South Australian History Festival is an annual state wide event exploring our state’s places and spaces, stories, collections and ideas that make us who we are.

In 2022, the History Festival is exploring the theme ‘reimagine’.

The City of Marion has a variety of events, exhibitions and adventures we're inviting you to come and explore during this year's History Month.
