SIXTH ST HANDMADE artist market & BLUES, BREWS AND BBQS

Join us as we fill our street with over 50 stalls: artists, scrumptious food, creative workshops, games and cubby building. Enjoy the soulful, acoustic melodies of Hannah Smith, Corey  Theatre and Nathan Rigney and settle into the Kondoli whale tent for Ngarrindjeri storytelling with Aunty Lena Rigney.

Our 9am start includes a smoking ceremony by Ngarrindjeri elder Aunty Sandy Wilson.

Find the local blokes with their Blues, Brews and BBQs in the market's backyard, cooking up a gourmet storm on their quirky, woodfired bbqs and offering tastings of their shed-crafted brews. (All proceeds from the bbqs goes to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.)

Relax in the pop up bar and enjoy the acoustic sounds of Peri Strathearn, and the sliding, stomping  blues of David Blight and Mick Kidd.


Look who is joining us!
