2019 Dinner in the Dark

Enter a world where your notion of taste and smell are tested...for a good cause.

Dinner in the Dark is Can:Do 4Kids signature fundraising event. Established in 2014, it is the first of its kind in the state and has raised over $400,000 for vital services for South Australian children who are blind, Deaf or sensory challenged. 

National Wine Centre's executive chef Steven Clarke creates a mystery four-course menu combining innovative textures and flavours that seek to ignite the senses. Each table is hosted by a local winery brand ambassador, expertly pairing their unique wine to each course and guiding guests through the blindfolded dining experience.

WHEN – Friday 12 April 2019

WHERE – National Wine Centre

TIME – From 6.30pm

TICKETS – $199 per person (includes a $50 donation to Can:Do 4Kids)

Sorry - ticket sales for this event have now closed.

We are excited to announce that Dinner in the Dark is an associated event on the 2019 Tasting Australia program. 

Showcasing the best of the country alongside the home-grown heroes - be they chefs, winemakers, producers, restaurateurs or other – Tasting Australia brings together a full-bodied, locally grown program of activity. For 10 days Tasting Australia is your passport to the premium, unprecedented eating and drinking experiences that only South Australia can offer! 

Thank you to the South Australian Tourism Commission and Tasting Australia for allowing us to be a part of this fantastic South Australian event.


We would like to thank our Event Partners for their continued support. Dinner in the Dark could not be a success without their generosity and support. Please consider supporting their businesses in return.
