Winter has very much set in (I know, where has the year gone?!). But the cold weather doesn’t have to be miserable and spent indoors. Whack on your favourite sweater, gather the gang and head down to these festive Christmas In July Twilight Markets on the northside. Who said we can’t celebrate Christmas twice a year? And it just means we get to experience a somewhat “winter wonderland” feel like the Northern Hemisphere does.
Popping up at VEND Marketplace on Saturday, July 16, this festive market will have stallholders serving up a selection of homemade goodies. Everything from bespoke handmade gifts, heartwarming food truck eats and Christmas dinner food to mulled wine and hot chocolate.
There will also be a pop-up cocktail bar serving tantalising tipples, so you can sip into the evening while you get your Christmas shopping done five months in advance.
To make things even more jolly, there’ll be a $100 voucher up for grabs to the person with the best (ugliest) Christmas sweater. Time to get creative.
The kids will love this market as well, with free face painting and a jumping castle.
Oh, and if your pupper is part of the gang, then they can also come along to this pet-friendly shindig.
Entry to the Christmas In July Twilight Markets is free.
