The Clarendon Bridge 100 Year Anniversary Celebration


The 100 year Clarendon bridge celebration is on Sunday 21st July 2019, a day when the whole community is invited to come together to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the building of Clarendon second bridge.

It will be a day of fun, food and entertainment for the whole family. The day begins with a re-enactment of the 1919 bridge opening then a walk down to the bridge for a commemorative photo. Then head back to the Community Hall where there will be something on offer for everyone. Embracing the winter cold we will have a huge variety of board games, puzzles and activities scattered inside the heated walls of the Community Hall. It's a great chance for young and old to learn from each other as you explore new games. We will also be bringing the LEGO bridge building table for everyone wanting to try their hand at building the strongest bridge. The Clarendon Museum 'Bridging the Onkaparinga' exhibit banners will be on show so that you can read up on the history of the bridge too! If you’re not into board games, why not grab a wine, beer or hot coffee and settle in for a yarn by the cozy fire pits, listening to the acoustic stylings of music from Blind Arry.

Our outdoor entertainment furniture is kindly donated by the good folks at Evnture. You won't go hungry either as we have some awesome meals available from Feisty Filomena or a tasty treat from Xpresso Mobile Cafe Lonsdale.
