Castlemaine has been a mecca for artists, musicians, crafts people, foodies and the curious visitor for a long time now and the Castlemaine Makers Market has been a big part of that transition. On the first Sunday of every month the Castlemaine Western Oval transforms into a gold mine of art, craft, food, and music. At the heart of the market is a desire to showcase and grow the rich community of independent artists and makers from across the Goldfields region. With more than 70 makers each month, as well as a great selection of local musicians, workshops, food offerings, and activities for the kids, this free event is a must see for any visitor to the area and let’s not forget the locals. Add to that the feel-good country vibe of the market and visitors will find a unique, authentic country experience. The makers range from painters, ceramicists, clothing designers, photographers, jewellery-makers, blacksmiths, leather crafters, crocheters, and much, much more. There truly is something for everyone. Come along and experience it for yourself! Start now by making sure these dates are in your diary.
