The Beaufort Street Artisan Market is an initiative of the community-based non-profit, the Beaufort Street Network and will include all the usual products such as art, craft, food, ceramics, fashion, furniture and jewellery. It was established in 2014 to promote local artists and create a vibrant, colourful and dynamic event on Beaufort Street.
“Dogtober is one the best events on Beaufort Street”, said local dog lover, Pam Herron, Chair of the Beaufort Street Network. “We’ll have a photographer taking free photos of you and your dog and our famous Dog Show from 11.30am.
“Dogtober also supports local dog-focussed charities that will have stalls on the day”.
The free outdoor art market offers a unique chance for local creatives to display their wares in a market stall, a suitcase display or a fence display. All products are Western Australian-made, with art from the local area the top priority.
“There are lots of other markets around Perth now. But there is nothing quite like the Beaufort Street Artisan Market. It’s a very affordable way for local artisans and stallholders to find new customers and sell their products.”
“It’s one of a range of things we are doing to create a better Beaufort Street”, says Herron.
The Dogtober Artisan Market will be on from 9am to 1pm, Sunday 9 October 2016 in the Barlee Street carpark on Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley.
