(6/12/2019) Christmas activities in Fremantle

Two of Fremantle’s favourite Christmas events will be happening over the next two weekends.

WA’s best Christmas market, Bazaar, returns to Fremantle Arts Centre this weekend for its 40th year.

This three days of retail heaven, featuring 50 of WA’s most talented designers and makers, is held in the lovely surrounds of FAC’s front garden.

With a bar, delicious food and DJs, it’s the perfect chance to pick up unique, quality Christmas gifts, find the finest jewellery, fashion, ceramics, sculpture, woodwork and textiles, and support local artists this festive season.

Bazaar opens this afternoon at 4pm and continues all day Saturday and Sunday from 9am–5pm.

Next weekend you can warm up your vocal cords and get your Christmas hats out for Carols by Candlelight at Fremantle Oval.

The Libby Hammer Quintet, WA’s best loved jazz outfit is returning to Fremantle with The Arcadian Voices to lead you through a Christmas carol spectacular.

The festive sing-along will include free children’s activities, roving entertainment, food from local vendors and a surprise visitor from the North Pole.

Carols is on again on Sunday 15 December. Gates open at 5pm and carolling runs from 6.30-8pm.
