Two new antique fairs to replace the Fryerstown closure
Unfortunately after 43 years the unique and very popular Fryerstown Antique Fair is now closed. A group of stallholders took on the role the entrepreneur and have started not one but two fairs over the same Australia Day long weekend. Please ensure you read the details of each fair below as they have different opening days.

This fair will have 20 inside sites and 50 outdoors. Most of the dealers will be those who were at the Fryerstown site, so expect to find not only quality antiques but many rustic and vintage old wares.

Take along plenty of cool drinks and wear a hat. There will be refreshments, drinks and ice-creams for sale. Campbells Creek is a small village to the west of Castlemaine, only a few minutes drive. There is only a small corner store. If coming from the city for the day be sure to bring plenty of food and fuel. Do the stall holders a favour and bring your small change and break those big notes before you come.
