This annual celebration of all things community is set to be the biggest and best yet with around 160 producers, makers, retailers and community-based organisations taking over Ardross Street. Discover locally made arts & crafts, homewares, giftware, fashion and jewellery for the whole family and so much more. Come along and spend a leisurely few hours perusing unique Christmas gift ideas for family members, friends and co-workers.
After meeting the talented producers, makers and creators, you can relax and unwind with awesome entertainment for the young and young at heart. From live music to roving performers, you are sure to love the vibrant community atmosphere! The little ones will have a ball in the kids' fun bus and dedicated kids' zone where they can visit an adorable animal farm, have their face painted, jump on the bouncy castle and so much more!
