Perth Northbridge Festival

I just found an amazing blog who features local events in Perth, Australia. Looks like there is a heck of a lot of stuff going on there too!

This blog post was titled: "Perth Marketplace - Support Our Local Design Industry" by Jen Hiller. She seems like quite an awesome lady too!

From the official site: "The City of Perth Northbridge Festival explodes in a kaleidoscope of brilliant sound, colour and flavour this November 14-21.
Eight full days of free entertainment spanning music, culture and the arts... plus much, much more.
Continuing Northbridge's tradition as the heart and soul of WA culture, the Northbridge Festival brings the best in music, theatre, street art, markets and more."

**Looks like this is more of a music fest than a craft fair, just an FYI...

The dates and times of these shows for 2009 were:
