Summer Market Information
Baw Baw Arts Alliance Inc. (hereinafter known as Bbaa) runs the Warragul Arts Market. Bbaa is a volunteer organisation.
The Arts Market is a free cultural event where visitors can view and experience what the local arts community has to offer. Artists showcase their unique handmade art works including painting, printmaking, illustrations, sculpture, ceramics, mosaics, photography, woodwork, furniture, fibre work, knitting, metalwork, handmade jewellery and clothing.
Visitors can also view demonstrating artists, live music and performers as well as participate in hands on creative arts activities.
