Would you choose face painting or paintings on the wall?
There's something for everyone at this year's Lindfield Art Show and Fair. This annual event is part art show, part market, with lots to keep the kids amused. Think an upmarket fete with plenty to tempt everyone.

The event centres around the Lindfield Art Show. If you like strolling through the aisles of an art show, or are looking to buy that unique or special piece of art for your home, then look no further. The art show will feature award-winning artists as well as emerging ones and organisers say it is one of the best known art shows on the North Shore.

Alongside the art show on Saturday (9:30am - 4pm), you will find a fair with flair that also has free entry. Browse through the market stalls for jewellery, home-wares, accessories and handcrafted fashion for children and adults. Be tempted by the cake and flower stalls or find yourself a bargain at the second-hand book store.
Relax with a barista made coffee, or enjoy some gelato. Consider lunch taken care of as it doesn't matter if you are in the mood for a slow cooked pulled pork roll, stir fried hokkien noodles, or a glass of bubbly with a chicken sandwich, you are sure to find something to tempt you.

There is plenty on offer for the kids. Get a $10 or $20 Kids Zone pass and let the kids jump, toss, slide, fish, shoot, and throw to their hearts content. There is a special Kidz Kanteen to tempt the little ones, and with rides, face painting, and showbags on offer, you may find it difficult to get the kids to leave!
