St Kilda Twilight Market, Fire Twirling & Xmas Drinks

The meeting time has been changed to 7:00pm.

The O'Donnell Gardens come to life Thursday nights during summer...

Let's enjoy a wonderful array of artworks, vintage wear, craft, hand designed fashion and jewellery in a beautiful location beneath the palm trees beside Luna Park. A great opportunity to get unique Christmas presents for yourself, or those you love.

Along with the opportunity to practice your street photography, an array of entertainment will also be at the markets providing a rich source of shots with their fire twirling, dancing and general merriment!

Once you've had your fill of the markets, head over to Republica on St Kilda beach to enjoy a refreshing festive season beverage and meals for the hungry ones. Their website is here: http://www.republica.net.au/. Just head over there when you're ready.

Due to the popularity of the markets, it's suggested that you take public transport to this event - Trams 96,16,3/3a and 79 all get you to and from the market.

Bring your camera, tripod and festive spirit!

This is the last event for our group for 2013.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Ho ho ho.

Thank you Linda for your help with details for this event.

  • Bill L.

    Hey Gang,
    I am one of the fire dancers at this market.
    Fire starts typically around 8-8:30 PM, We usually finish the fire by about 10 or 11 PM. Two thursdays during this period will not have markets on, so please keep an eye on the official FB page. Also, additional market nights are added at the end of summer in lieu of rained out cancellations.

    This fire circle is photographer friendly, but please don't shoot flash at us when we are facing you!

    Also, I would advise using UV filters; if you are close enough for a portrait then you risk fuel being sprayed onto your glass. It happens!

    Have fun and say hi!
    Bill

  • Bill L.

    Market is off today, folks:
    "ANNOUNCEMENT

    Regretfully we have cancelled tomorrow's market due to thunderstorms and possible hail. We'll be kicking off the season next week (Thursday Dec 12) so spread the word and join us then for delicious food, unique artisan handcrafts, awesome vintage clothing and the sweet summer vibe of Melbourne's most loved outdoor market. xx"

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
