International Crafts and Food on the 10th February will mark the annual return of Prosperous Mountain Lion Dance, Drum Assault, and Bellyup Bellydance.
After the holidays we can't wait for a string of talented performances when we return on the 13th of January for Portobello Road. We've got singer/songwriter Rebecca Mann's first performance at the Markets on the last Sunday of the month. We look forward to live performances of songs form her new EP, Moon.
In case you haven't heard, Santa's in town and he's brought Ernest the Elf. Only for the Christmas Season, Ernest visits the markets and will entertain the kids once again in the opening Saturday and Sunday respectively on the 1st and 2nd December for Christmas Kids.
Moving on to the last segment of Spring, we look forward to a visit from TraXion Big Band who will play fantastic music that will be well-suited for Remembrance Day commemorations. Tinker's Cuss has been livening things up, and Lisa Maps has been busy playing at more gigs.
This October we celebrate the best of the swingin' 50's with a free taster class run by the award-winning Canberra Swing Katz on 11am for Retro Depot. Also on for the month are two performers strongly influenced by the late great Johnny Cash. It's the return of The Guitar Cases and the first performance at the Markets by Andy Nelson.
There will be two exciting yet very different performances on Makers-Con thanks to Guyy and the Fox and AFK Choir. The latter of whom have been known to sing about topics like Star Trek and zombies. We also have two musicians on tour, Nathan Power and Zac Saber, both on the 23rd.
Making sure we get off on the right foot, we have our friends from Jumptown Swing who are celebrating Canberra’s festival of swing, Canberräng. The talented Monique Lewis will also be playing this month. In her young career, she's already performed in such venues as the Hyperdome and the Imperial Mae Ping Hotel in Thailand.
