The Mythical Markets is a fantastical mix of high fantasy wares presented in a magical setting atop the Dandenong Ranges. Unleash your inner fairy, wizard, swashbuckler or goblin by arriving dressed in your finest costumed best to revel in this very unique and imagination-run-wild, fun-filled event.
As you crossover from the real world into the magical world of the Sherbrooke Forest, situated in the glorious Mt Dandenong Ranges, let your fantasies take flight. Here you can enjoy the spectacle and splendour of your wildest fantasies brought to life in a landscape of likeminded people who share your passion and love of things like dragons and fairies, mermaids and unicorns.
Makers and artisan stallholders were given a very specific brief when they signed on to be part of this Mythical Markets event. Their wares must possess a strong element of the supernatural in their theme and design - from folklore to faerie, LARP adventurers to steampunk, medieval and wizardry, swashbuckling to high fantasy and more. We're talking dragons and swords, goblets and fire, wings and magic wands and anything and everything you can think of taken straight from the pages of your favourite fairytale.
Costumes are encouraged as you will be mingling with like-minded friends. Then together set off on a quest through this mystical world as along the way you are sure to stumble upon troves of treasure including crafts and collectables, costumes and clothing, accessories, prints, decorator items, toys, books and ever so much more. Indulge your passion for all things mythical and mystical - but if this theme doesn't really flutter your wings, simply come along and enjoy the atmosphere while thinking 'gift giving' as we draw near to Christmas. You're sure to find some lovely and unexpected delights.
The Mythical Market is being held on Saturday 2nd December 2017 from 1pm to 5pm (so as not to rouse any sleeping dragons) at the Ferny Creek Recreation Reserve, Clarkmont Road, Sassafras. Entry requires a $2 gold token, with 'kids' under 18 years admitted free.
