5:00pm Friday 15th May - Friday 29th May 2020
Due to the cancellation of The Spot Festival 2020, we have decided to bring the Spot Festival to you. From the comfort of your own home, you now have access to all the fantastic stallholders that would’ve attended the festival this year. Be sure to browse through each category to explore the colourful market stalls, amazing array of international foods and show your support for a local charity or sporting team.
We also encourage you to support your favourite Spot business by shopping local. Many local businesses are still open and have shifted to offering takeaway or online services.
The Virtual Marketplace will be live from 5:00pm Friday 15th May – Friday 29th May 2020.
Please contact each business directly regarding purchases. For more information regarding the marketplace, please contact Randwick City Council Events Team via email email@example.com
