The biggest and the best
It seems that great events just keep getting better and better, and the Moonlight Markets is one of these. Back again for another summer season at Thorndon Park at Paradise, these markets are now entering their sixth great year with more stalls and activities planned than ever before.

The Moonlight Markets are held on the first Friday evening of November, December, February and March, and attracted in excess of 15,000 visitors per evening last summer. The markets are free to enter, open from 6pm to 10pm on each of the Friday evenings and are proudly presented by the Campbelltown City Council.

Highlights for the upcoming season include a visit from Father Christmas with his elves and fairies, live performances from a variety of local talent including music and dance, roaming Christmas carols, and a record number of stalls and food outlets participating. The Moonlight Markets also operate with a key objective of supporting the local Food Trail businesses, another initiative from the Campbelltown City Council.

Since commencing in 2011 the markets have steadily grown in popularity and there are now over 100 stalls selling fashion, kidswear, jewellery, homewares, art and craft as well as the food outlets. And with two Friday markets on offer before Christmas there is a great chance that you can pick up that special Christmas gift for that hard-to-buy loved one.

Live entertainment, the large playground, and the Thorndon Park Reserve with its birdlife ensures a fun-filled evening for all ages. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic rug or chairs and settle down for a stunning sunset over the lake while listening to the music and enjoying quality authentic wine and local food products.
