Baw Baw Arts Alliance Inc. runs the Trafalgar Arts Market on the first Saturday of each month from 9am – 1.00pm. (October –March) in at the Hall in Contingent St Trafalgar. This 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. The market is a unique experience that brings the creative to the Trafalgar community and beyond. It provides an opportunity for people to talk directly with artists about their work. It offers a venue for artists to build networks and collaborate with other artists and to be part of an active creative community. Non-profit community art groups may apply to have a stall free of charge.
