Leura Village Fair
Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October 2018
Now in it’s 37th year, the Leura Village Fair provides the perfect opportunity for visitors of all ages to celebrate spring in the Blue Mountains. Set over two days, this vibrant event sees market stalls lining Leura Mall and extending into Megalong Street Carpark.
Visitors can expect a diverse range of stalls selling everything from fashion and jewellery to art, ceramics, homewares, beauty products, sweet treats, garden sculptures and cool-climate plants. Each year the Leura Village Association (LVA) offers subsidised stalls to local artisans and this year we have had more artisan applications than ever before. This means the Fair has a very strong local flavour, with talented locals showcasing their products alongside a well-curated mix of stallholders from across New South Wales.
Megalong Street Carpark is transformed into an international canteen for the duration of the Fair, with stallholders offering cuisine from France, Switzerland, Mexico, Vietnam, China, Germany, Turkey and Spain. Regional providores, farmers, wineries and cider makers are also located in the carpark – it’s a great opportunity to get a true taste of the Blue Mountains.
For more information, please visit our Leura Village Fair Facebook page.
