Say ‘see ya’ to boring socks and jocks, and ‘hello’ to the perfect pressie for your main man picked up at The Village Markets.

On this Sunday, September 1 at Burleigh Heads State School, The Village Markets are the ultimate one-stop-shop for all things Dad. Not only will the usual line-up of home-grown brands and creative artisans be on offer, but there will also be plenty of extra fun to enjoy. Expect a free photo booth to snap some fun family keepsakes, a free arts and crafts workshop with The Heart Cart (perfect for dads and kids to bond while mum shops up a storm) and even an amazing prize pack on offer, giving one lucky dad the chance to win over $200 worth of goodies featuring some of The Village Market’s biggest and best brands.

The Gold Coast’s favourite creative event, The Village Markets will be set to the soundtrack of not one, but two live performers. Blues musician Matthew Armitage will sing under the trees from 8:30 am – 10:30 am, and local songstress Lily Budiasa will take the reins from 11 am until 1 pm.

You can even enjoy breakfast and lunch thanks to the curated line-up of street food vendors on offer, including special deals just for dads (hello ice-cream sundae!). Chow down on delicious food under the sun and soak up the atmosphere at the ever-popular Village Markets – and maybe even spoil dad with a new party shirt or pair of crazy sock.
