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.

Campbells Creek Fryers Antique and Collectable Fair This fair is named after the road which connects the two villages. It is the longest running of the two fairs this weekend. OPEN DAYS- Thursday 25th, Friday 26th, Saturday 27th 7am- 5pm and Sunday 28th 9-3pm.
This location will have around 100 stalls on 20 acres. CONTACTS- Craig 0412 508 170 or Kim 0407 822 280
Browse the 100s of stalls for that special find. Image by Kat May.
Campbells Creek Antique and Collectables Fair OPEN DAYS- Friday 26th and Saturday 27th 8-5pm
LOCATION- Community Hall CONTACT 03-5444 3116
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.
Some stalls will be inside the community hall. Image by Kat May.

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.
