Art Bazaar has been held every year since 2002!! When Art Bazaar began back in 2002 it was originally held in Laman Street. Art Bazaar started with an idea from Newcastle City Council and this is how Hunter Arts Network was formed. Twenty years ago Art Bazaar began to develop a loyal following and fan base. HAN is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers who have also worked hard to celebrate all modalities of visual arts and the committee that has come together continues to do an amazing job to make this happen.

Here are some other tips to assist with stall preparation (please note, we don’t stipulate the colour of canopies):
After you have driven on to the park and located your stall, unload your vehicle and then move your vehicle to the on street parking and then come back and start setting up your stall.
Remember safety comes first and our major concern is the wind
Provide your own 3 x 3 metre market tent – this MUST be a good quality gazebo for example OZTrail
Market tents MUST be pegged AND heavily weighed down. If bringing water weights it is often a good idea fill your water weights before bringing them
We email bump in information to all stallholders within 24 hours before the event which shows what times and where you can drive on, unload, drive off, park your car, return and set up. This information will also be posted on our website and socials at the same time.

Small kit of stationery items ie scissors/safety pins/black marker texta/sticky tape
Pack the car the night before
Leave your day to day handbag at home and only take what is essential for security reasons/bring a small crossover bag for your change/ or bumbag
If you are by yourself tell ALL your friends to drop in and say hello so you at least get a toilet break!

Plenty of drinking water
If you make clothes of jewellery, wear it on the day
Be doing something with your hands, sewing or painting or other making as people like seeing creative people being creative, it not only creates a topic of conversation but you are not sitting there starring at the customer, freaking them out
