Event description
Blak Markets provides a diverse range of locally made arts, crafts and native plants from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities.

About this event

Join us at the Blak Cultural Festival as we celebrate the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture.

The Blak Markets provide a great chance to buy authentic and unique Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural gifts, with the knowledge that 100% of the profits are going back into their communities. This Blak Markets features Aboriginal stallholders selling Arts, Crafts and bush foods including native plants, award winning jewellery and pure silk scarves.

CEO, Peter Cooley, said "We're really proud that the Blak Markets have proved to be a big success for both visitors to the Markets and our stallholders over such a long period. La Perouse has a long history of being an Aboriginal Destination in Sydney and we are rekindling the fires that where lit by the original Aboriginal Families that used to make and sell their Cultural wares along the La Perouse loop".

The Blak Markets is run in partnership with Randwick City Council and Kamay Botany Bay - National Parks and Wildlife Service.

Blak Markets is a Covid-19 Safe event and all attendees are required to be double vaccinated, sign in with the event QR code, wear a mask, sanitise hands and maintain social distancing.

You must book through Eventbrite to attend and $2.50 entrance fee at the gate. All proceeds raised from gate admissions go towards employing local Indigenous youth.
