The Roleystone Christmas Market, one of Perth's favourite Christmas markets, returns on Sunday 6th December 2020, with a huge line-up of over 100 exciting stallholders, family entertainment, free kids activities and a special appearance from the big man in red!
Come along with the whole family from 3.00pm to 8.00pm and enjoy a leisurely Sunday afternoon in the delightful township of Roleystone. This hidden treasure is just 40 minutes from the CBD but it's a world away, boasting stunning scenery, a scenic drive and a vibrant village town centre.
Climbing the Perth Hills, through the stunning orchards and the lush valley will certainly not disappoint and neither will the destination of Cross Park, which will be transformed into a bustling marketplace. Situated on a huge oval and surrounded by shady trees, this large grassed area offers an inviting, spacious and protective bushland setting.
Over the past 7 years, Roleystone Markets has gained a well-deserved reputation for being one of the best markets in the region and the annual Christmas Market has regularly been included in top 10 must-visit lists! This year's event is expected to attract a huge crowd and is sure to get the whole family in the spirit of Christmas!
Christmas Shopping Galore!
Organisers have carefully curated over 100 stallholders which will be well-positioned around the park. Discover a diverse range of excellent quality, handmade products by local makers, creators and artisans and producers offering locally grown gourmet delights, such as Devoted Artisan Butter!
There is sure to be something for 'everyone' on your Christmas list and special treats for your festive celebrations including your pets!
Wherever you turn, you are sure to be pleased by what's on offer! Choose from woodwork chopping boards, glass platters, bowls, light panels, local pottery, jams, sweets, olives, cards, exotic soap products, unique jewellery, glittering crystals, distinctive candles, handbags and so much more!
Importantly, there will be no more than three stalls selling the same product and absolutely no generic imported products. With a clear focus on quality and supporting the local community, Roleystone Market stands out from other community markets and maintains its reputation as a 'Destination Market'.
Entertainment For All the Family
For a small village, Roleystone is offering an impressive array of entertainment for all ages, from the FREE activities for the kids, including Old McDonald's petting farm, face painting and inflatable cars (all FREE thanks to the generous support of the Community Bank - Roleystone Karragullen and the 2nd Chance op Shop), to the music provided throughout the market including local singers, and the headline act for the sunset concert - ABBAsolutely, a fantastic ABBA tribute band!
A Foodie's Delight!
Adding to the vibrant community atmosphere is a selection of food trucks, showcasing the diversity of the region with food from all corners of the globe. Look forward to:
