All of the wonderful things that Creative Markets has become so well known for will still be there. Enjoy a wide range of unique products from over 60 stallholders, free entry, free parking, and entertainment, all in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Even though Creative Markets are having the birthday, it will be visitors that will be able to receive the treats. Birthday giveaways including beauty products and services, movie tickets, gift vouchers and special stallholder products will be on offer to visitors. Some stallholders will even be offering market deals especially for the birthday weekend celebrations.

The Mount Gravatt boutique market will give people the chance to browse products from a diverse range of retailers. With father's day just around the corner, this would be the perfect opportunity to pick up a keepsake for any dad, grandpa or father-figure out there. Or better still, maybe you'll find that something special to take home to spoil yourself. There will be plenty of entertainment to keep the whole family happy when the shopping is done. Live music, face painting, baby farm animals, jumping castle and pony rides are certain to keep the kids happy. When you're ready for an afternoon pick-me-up there will be some delicious gourmet snacks available to recharge your batteries.

The Springwood handmade market will, as always, be showcasing beautiful, unique, hand crafted wares. It's fast becoming a south side Sunday morning hangout for designers, crafters and foodies, along with people wanting a relaxing morning break. Once again, the whole family is well catered for with food stalls, live music and kid's activities. For the birthday market the kids highlight will be a swashbuckling adventure on the high seas with an interactive pirate show.
