Wattle Range Council is excited to announce the return of monthly Community Markets to Millicent.

Following the feedback received in our recent survey, the monthly markets will be held in the Millicent Civic and Arts Centre, with the option of an outdoor market in the Domain parklands when the weather permits.

Council is now calling for Market Hosts.

A ‘Market Host’ can be any community organisation who would like to raise some funds by assisting with running a market. A Market Host will:

  • Assist with setting up the market tables and chairs
  • Provide sweet treats and run the cake stall
  • Run the sausage sizzle
  • Collect stallholder fees
  • Pack up tables and chairs at the end of the market

In return, the Market Host will keep all revenue collected on the day (including the stallholder table fees). The markets are a lucrative fundraising opportunity for local clubs and organisations which can result in hundreds (or even thousands) of dollars in fundraising revenue.

It is anticipated that the Market Host will vary each market, giving all community groups an opportunity to fundraise. The upcoming tentative market dates are:

  • 20 November 2021 (Millicent 150th Celebrations weekend)
  • 11 December 2021
  • 15 January 2022
  • 19 February 2022
  • 19 March 2022
  • 2 April 2022 (Geltwood Festival)

If your club/organisation would like to host a Millicent Community Market, please submit an expression of interest. An Expression of Interest Form can be obtained by emailing events@wattlerange.sa.gov.au
