Bowerbird is a place to meet friends, discover new and innovative creations, learn new skills and most importantly, build strong relationships with brands and designers.

Soak up the atmosphere on Friday night with friends, enjoy the music, try tasty treats from your favourite food vendors and of course get the first look at what’s on offer from our designers and makers. Join us Saturday and Sunday for a leisurely shop, workshop, catch up with friends or enjoy time with your family, with plenty to discover over the weekend for both adults and kids.
