Winter in the East End is an activation hosted by the City of Adelaide and Maras Group throughout the months of July and August. The event aims to bring vibrancy and activity to four of Adelaide’s East End laneways (Vaughan Place, Vardon Avenue, Stag Lane and Sugar Lane). Each weekend the laneways are filled with live music, open fire pits, hot chocolate and mulled wine.

ForMile Events was tasked with providing operational and logistical support to the event by placing 7 open fire pits throughout the precinct. This activation required careful planning and security provisions to ensure public and asset safety while lighting open fires in publicly accessible locations. Furthermore, ForMile Events transported more than 500kg of firewood each night to ensure the fire pits remained ‘stoked’ for the event participants to enjoy.
