Market Expansion

2018 is an exciting year for The Handmade Expo with 4 new locations opening!!

April saw the new Brisbane Northside location in Strathpine at the Strathpine Community Centre open and sites were booked out within 4 weeks of releasing the application form creating the largest waitlist we've seen in a long time. After closing our Morayfield venue back in 2015 there had been numerous requests to reopen on the northside as handmade businesses were seeking quality avenues to sell their wares at.

July sees the grand opening of our Mackay location which will run twice a year at this stage and will be held at the Mackay PCYC on a Saturday. We had been toying with the idea of opening a market in the Mackay region for some time since Airlie Beach first started and with the success of that market location we decided that now was time to do it. So far since announcing the new venue and putting the application form on the website the response has been fantastic with many of our current Airlie Beach stallholders keen to expand their client base plus loads of new and exciting businesses joining The Handmade Expo family. 

Proserpine won't miss out either with a market date booked for November at the Proserpine Cyclone Shelter! With no completely handmade market in the area our mission is to promote handmade products from the local area as well as from the surrounding region.

After 10 years of holding markets in Queensland The Handmade Expo is extremely excited to be expanding into Northern NSW!!

August is set for our grand opening in Lismore at the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre. This area has an amazing assortment of creative artisans and we are looking forward to having them all in the one place in a fully indoors venue.

You can find all the dates and locations on our website at
