Porterville Annual Art Weekend

WORDS Michaela Stehr

The Porterville Annual Art Weekend will be taking place from Friday 1st October to Sunday 3rd October 2021, bringing art lovers, foodies, families and friends together in a safe outdoor setting.

In its fourth incantation, the fair will bring opportunities to purchase and view a variety of works from emerging and established local artists. The art community welcomes visitors and will be offering ware ranging from jewellery and ceramics to paintings, woodwork, mosaic, crochet, tableware, quilting, beading and beyond.


The fair will have 15 active “stops” which visitors can explore, with workshops running for people who would like to learn skills and get their hands dirty. Live music performances are also on the cards, with headliner Francois van Coke kicking off the weekend on Friday evening.

Tickets are not required for the Proudly Porterville weekend as entry is free, but accommodation bookings, restaurant reservations and workshop bookings are recommended ahead of the time due to demand.  For more information visit the website, here
