Essendon are set for an enticing round four fixture as they take on the Power at Adelaide Oval this Friday night.

The Bombers will be involved in the league-wide Gather Round festivities across their stay in SA, including a couple of player appearances this Saturday.

During the league-wide Footy Fest at Elder Park on Friday, the club will be running activations from 10am-2pm, with a bunch of prizes on offer including a $500 voucher thanks to Liberty.

It makes for a nice lead-in to the Dons' clash with Port Adelaide, which kicks off at 7:40pm local time (8:10pm AEDT).

Bombers' players will head to Elder Park on the Saturday morning from 9:30-10:30am, followed by an appearance at Rundle Mall between 9:30-10:30am ACDT*.

*An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated the Rundle Mall appearance would occur from 11am-12pm. Essendon apologises for any inconvenience caused.
