Once the Credit Union Christmas Pageant is over, there's still plenty to do in Adelaide!

Australian International Three Day Event

If you’re looking for another exciting activity to follow up a morning spent with the Credit Union Christmas Pageant, Australia’s premier equestrian competition, the Australian International 3 Day Event could be your answer. 


The Adelaide event is unique in the world being the only one staged in the heart of a vibrant city centre, taking place in the picturesque Adelaide Parklands from the 16thNovember to the 19th November.  


On Saturday it is Cross Country competition, the most exhilarating discipline of the three day event, requiring determination, courage and unfailing trust between horse and rider to clear one imposing obstacle after another during this long and gruelling phase.


The Adelaide Parklands provides the perfect setting for families to enjoy a leisurely afternoon watching the competition after a fun filled morning at the Credit Union Christmas Pageant.  There will also be a special guest appearance by Nimble after she has finished her duties with the Pageant in the Market Place Village at the event from 12pm – 4pm.

Single Day General Admission Tickets start from $18.35, and children U/16 are free on Saturday.
