Stallholder applications are now open for the 2023 Bash Fringe Markets and Family Fun Day – run by the Patton Village Association – to be held following the Mundi Mundi Bash, on Sunday, August 20 from 11am to 4pm at 100 Eyre St.
Market stall sites (3x3m²) are available for $30 per site, with powered sites also available for an additional $5 per site. There are limited food van sites available. The event will also have activities for kids, including bouncy castles and merry-go-rounds, live music, and food and drinks for sale.
Patton Village Association Chairman, Larry Angell, said some 2000 people attended last year and encouraged stallholders and businesses to book a spot at the new, bigger location, predicting another well-attended event full of opportunities to showcase the region’s crafty talents.
“We decided that we were going to do the same [markets] again this year, but this time, we needed a different venue other than Patton Street Park. We needed something bigger,” Mr Angell told us.
“We’re now going to be using the Bowling Club and that’s got two greens so the bottom green will be filled up with market stalls, the top green will have the kids’ entertainment area. We’ve got a musician performing and we’ve got some lovely food stalls already putting their hands up.
“The whole concept is a great way to let small arts and crafts people showcase what they can do, and that’s really what it’s all about, and gives these Mundi Mundi Bash people the chance to spend money which is even better.
“We’ve got about 13 sites booked already, so we’re probably getting up close to about half full. If people are thinking about wanting to book, they can book through us. We expect it to be very, very busy. At least as busy as the first time we tried it.”
