Bowerbird is South Australia’s leading design showcase of Australian designers and makers. A curated three-day event held twice a year since 2009, Bowerbird celebrates high quality Australian design and workmanship, new ideas and innovation.
Attracting thousands of design-loving consumers each event, our established audience are passionate about supporting small production runs and the handmade.
Developed by designers and managed by event professionals, the Bowerbird team understands the needs of our vendors and customers and aim to deliver a fabulous weekend event for everyone.
Bowerbird promotes and supports Australian designers and makers.
If your products are not designed in Australia or if you are not the creator of the products you sell, you do not meet Bowerbird's primary evaluation criteria and cannot be selected for the market.
We wish you all the best and thank you for your interest in Bowerbird.
On Event Catering
This application is for designers and makers only – if you are a caterer, register your interest here.
If you are selling alcoholic products at Bowerbird, you will need to be registered on the Venue's liquor license. The cost of this is dependent on the number of vendors registered on the license for the event but is unlikely to exceed $100+GST. This will be billed post event.
The following information will be used to understand your brand and products in the evaluation of your application. It will also be used as content for the Bowerbird website, social posts and PR.
We require three (3) images of the products you wish to present at Bowerbird. These will be used on the Bowerbird website designer pages, social posts and any advertising and PR.
Below are the available stall types and prices:
We look for high standard of product displays and creative decorations.
Stalls are provided with a back wall covered in white cardboard to create a "blank canvas" for you to decorate as you wish. Pull up banners or corporate signage are not appropriate for Bowerbird.
Stall image specifications
Occasionally vendors need to cancel their stall after being selected, in this instance we endeavour to fill their position as soon as possible by contacting designers who have agreed to be on our waitlist.
What will happen if I am on the waitlist?
We will be generating opportunities to promote the event and the lineup through our media partners – SA Life, CityMag, InDaily and Frankie Magazine as well as radio.
We also create digital campaigns and promotions via our social channels and through PR.
Some opportunities may incur costs.
It is a condition of participation in the market that your business holds Public Liability Insurance to the value of $20 million.
If accepted, we will require your certificate no later than 2 weeks prior to the event.
If you have a certificate current for the event dates, you can upload the file now.
Bowerbird may be required to hold an SA Health approved COVID Safe Event Management Plan with enforced directives to meet State and Federal Government instructions relating to COVID-19.
By participating in Bowerbird vendors acknowledge that they will follow the directives outlined in the COVID Safe Event Management Plan. These will be defined closer to the event based on conditions at that time and may include but are not limited to any and all of the below:
I acknowledge that I may be required to adhere to any COVID directives.
You will receive a copy of your application via email. If you need to update any information, please do so within 30 days using the link in the email.
