A Captivating Family Event Showcasing Local Talents and Artisans
Prepare to be mesmerized once again by the enchanting FIREFLY Night Market, scheduled to take place on 24 June in Tarneit. This captivating event is ideal for the whole family. It serves as an excellent opportunity to support local talents, showcasing over 70 market stalls featuring skilled artisans and creators from the area.
Immerse yourself in a diverse stage program of cultural performances or venture through the illuminated art displays and mystical wandering characters.
Attendees will have the chance to indulge in delectable culinary delights and savor authentic cultural treats from a variety of food trucks. Alternatively, you can escape the hustle and bustle by relaxing in the chai tent, enjoying the aromatic brews on offer.
Wyndham City Mayor Councillor Susan McIntyre expressed the community’s overwhelming embrace of the event when it was first held last year, describing it as a “wonderful winter night filled with warm smiles from children and families.” This year’s edition promises to be even more spectacular, with a larger venue to accommodate an expanded array of activities. Mayor McIntyre encourages families to mark the date in their calendars and support the local stallholders and performers while enjoying this fantastic community gathering.
Stallholder applications are now being accepted, with a particular emphasis on local artisans, designers, growers, and entrepreneurs, especially those residing in or connected to Tarneit.
