The NEWPORT BEACH ARTS MARKET is the major fundraiser event for the annual Newport Sculpture Trail.
In 2016 the Newport Beach Arts Market will take place as the closing event on Sunday 27th of November.
It’s the local Christmas Market which is all about art and good taste, with the theme “inspired-by-the-sea”.
The focus is on quality handcrafted goods from local artists and designers, and includes homewares, beachwear, jewelry, unique gifts and gourmet Christmas treats.
You can also source your supplies to create your own unique ‘beach-inspired” festive decorations and cards, with demonstrations and workshops at the market.
There will be music and entertainment while you shop and craft activities and face painting for the kids.
Today will also be your last opportunity to visit the Newport Sculpture Trail and vote for your favourite sculpture. All voters for the People’s Choice Award go into a draw to win great prizes offered by our event sponsors.
The market commences at 9am and runs until 3pm .. the rest of the day is yours to enjoy at the beach!
For the event, we are looking for street performing artists and market stallholders offering arts, crafts, homewares or services “inspired by the sea”.
We are also offering an opportunity for schools, artist collectives and other community groups to participate in the event and showcase their organisations and work for free.
For performing artist enquiries call 0403 817 341 or for stallholder enquiries email firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for stallholder applications is 15th October 2016 unless sold out prior.
