Blak Markets Festival
The Blak Markets will kick off the year back on Bare Island on Sunday 9 February with Aboriginal stallholders selling their arts and crafts with everything from native plants to award winning jewellery to silk scarves featuring Aboriginal design.
There will be a wonderful festival line up of both contemporary and cultural performances featuring cultural dance performances by Djiriba Waagur and free interactive session for the kids with Larry Brandy Storytellers.
The Blak Markets are a chance to buy authentic unique gifts knowing that 100% of the profits go back into Aboriginal communities. This market will also have some great new bushfood drink products such as Boab Nut Iced Tea and non-alchoholic draft beers infused with native plant flavours from Aboriginal businesses in the bushfood industry.
The Blak Markets takes place at Bare Island within the Kamay-Botany Bay National Park with the support of the NSW Parks and Wildlife Service and Randwick City Council.
