OnWilliam Summer Night Markets return to the Perth Cultural Centre

  • Perth Cultural Centre

The Perth Cultural Centre is set to become an inner city playground for all ages on Friday 11th December, as the space is filled with live music, outdoor bars, food trucks and gift stalls in a one-evening-only event to kick off the Summer season.

OnWilliam’s Summer Night Markets join TruckStop, a super tasty collection of Perth’s best food trucks, to fill the Perth Cultural Centre for a fun Friday evening of open air shopping, feasting and playing right in the heart of our city. And to round out a beautiful summer’s evening, PICA Bar and Bar Pop present two amazing outdoor bars to sit back, relax and soak it all in.

Held just in time for Christmas and having gained a reputation over the last four years as a must visit pre-Christmas market, the event is set to light up the entire Perth Cultural Centre, with over 60 local makers and artists setting up to show off their wares - handmade clothing, jewellery, leather goods, vintage goods, homewares, stationery plus lots of art and gorgeous illustrations, providing the perfect setting to hunt out local and unique gifts this Christmas.

OnWilliam market curator Lake Bovell said the Summer Nights Markets are a great place to find that perfect gift.

“We have so many talented artisans and craftspeople in Perth and the Summer Night Markets gives shoppers access to them in one vibrant place, right in the heart of the city,” Ms Bovell said.

In addition to shopping, you can look forward to sampling tasty festive fare from the street food vendors and listening to live music on the Wetland stage by emerging WA musicians such as Jacob Diamond and Verge Collection.

With a focus on local designers, the markets are jam packed with cheerful and creative WA products; so take a stroll under the gorgeous lights, do a spot of shopping, grab a bite to eat then sit back and relax while local musicians play original music on the Wetland Stage.

The Summer Night Markets are presented by Northbridge community group OnWilliam and supported by the Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority.
