Come and enjoy the Emmaville Family Market
The Rotary Club of Orange has its next Community Markets during the Orange Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival (Sunday 24). The markets will host stalls with a wide range of local produce, art, craft, food, plants and treats, as well as rides for the kids and entertainment during the day by visiting bush poets and local talent.
President, Clivia Frieden, says “Rotary has supported local schools throughout the Banjo Paterson Festival, with creative poetry workshops, performance opportunities and a well-represented Primary School section in the poetry competition. The Rotary profits from these markets go further towards youth programs locally”.
As part of the Banjo Paterson Festival, the market is always a popular event, providing an opportunity for local businesses, artisans, knitters, nurseries and cooks to showcase their wares. The Emmaville Cottage will be open for free inspections and a guided history of the building and the property on which Banjo Paterson was born.
“Located on the grass below the cottage, there’s shade under the trees for lunch and plenty of parking at the site,” said Ms Frieden. “Come up to the top of Hill Street near the Botanic Gardens and enjoy the variety of stalls and the Festival atmosphere”.
You’ll find all of the happenings at the Botanic Gardens Precinct (at the corner of Hill Street and the Northern Distributor Road), see you there!
