Ballarat’s famous annual Springtime event is back

If you enjoy your retail therapy with a side of fresh air and picturesque surroundings, SpringFest Ballarat – Market Sunday is for you!

A bundle of fun for the whole family, the annual six-kilometre market, spanning along the Lake Wendouree foreshore, features over 530 market stalls full of delicious food, beverages, art and craft, clothing, jewellery, plants and flowers, perfumes and much more.

There is also plenty of entertainment and activities to excite everyone. With live music, a vintage car display and a sports zone, where you can learn to develop a new fitness regime or visit the western bulldogs to try out the inflatable road show, and plenty more.

Some highlights at this year’s SpringFest Ballarat will include the Peter Stevens MG Show-n-Glow/Vintage Car Display, PETstock Pet Corner, Grampians Central West Waste & Resource Recovery, Spring Garden, RACV Goldfields Resort Children’s Wunderfest, and the Strong Man and Woman Battle of Ballarat #3.

This year, SpringFest Ballarat is helping contribute to a more eco-friendly Earth by being a ‘no single-use plastic bag event’ so remember to bring your own bags along to take home your goodies!

It all goes down on Sunday November 24 from 10am – 4pm. Parking will be available at North Gardens Reserve and nearby Victoria Park, with a free shuttle bus service to and from the lake.
