Event:
Have a Holly Jolly Christmas at the Annerley Fair
The elves at Annerley are busy making preparations for the biggest day of their year with the Annerley Junction Christmas Fair fast approaching. In its fourth year, there is so much fun to be had at this little market with lots of heart.

Started by the Annerley Trader's Association, the event was meant to brighten up the area and breathe new life into the suburb. Annerley had been in decline for some years but the band of shop and business owners got their heads together to create a vibrant and exciting event which sparked the interest of the locals and those from across town.

There are lots of market stalls to browse, delicious food to eat and always lots of coffee. Catch a bite to eat at one of the local cafes or grab a snag at the BBQ stand. There are also cake stalls galore so you'll find something yummy to take home and enjoy for a pre-Christmas treat.

Santa and his elves make an appearance each year with candy and wishes to grant. You'll find him working his way up and down the shopping strip as he poses for photos and spreads the Christmas cheer.

Then there are the shops which each open their doors to allow the crowds free access in and out of the cool air-conditioning and a path to follow down the street of Annerley Junction. These events attract around 1500 visitors and have been growing steadily over the years.

This year, there is a treasure hunt for everyone to take part in with businesses donating goods for a hamper. All you have to do is visit the Annerley Community Hub stall, collect your score card and visit the places that are displayed on it for your chance to win.

This event is supported by Annerley Community Hub which is a non-profit organisation working in the suburb to help the most vulnerable people. You can find out more about them here and give generously at their stall on the day to ensure they continue to do good work for the neighbourhood.
