Adventure Market Update
The Blythedale Coastal Adventure Market has been an enjoyable experience for all involved. One of the latest instalments (on January 5 & 6) was accompanied by the Prawn, Jazz and Blues Festival. These fresh elements combined with the regular local vendors to create an unforgettable experience. This festival was epic, particularly on the Sunday. Every facet of this festival stimulated the senses and engaged the audience, particularly the relaxing music from several talented groups and artists. This was supplemented with an exquisite display of prawns cooked every which way; with their aroma almost as tantalising as their flavour. The weather was also stunning, with the shining sun capping off a beautiful weekend.
New elements are constantly being added to the Blythedale Event Bowl, in order to make it a facility capable of hosting a multitude of events and activities. Existing attractions are there to entertain families and clients of all ages. Following on from the multiple bar and entertainment areas; food and craft markets; and kids’ slides and jumping castles, we have one new element that has just been perfected. The latest significant installation is a holistic campsite that consists of 18 illuminated tents, all equipped with two single beds. The campsite is situated just 20 metres from the beach, at the base of the Bowl, and features fully functional bathrooms, hot showers, and DSTV at the coffee shop. The campsite is open on Friday and Saturday every week.
Themed markets will become a monthly occurrence, as we aim to provide market-goers with some added variety and excitement each month. This has influenced our decision in changing BCAM from a weekly event to one held monthly (on the first weekend of every month). Upcoming events include the Blythedale Wine Experience, Prawn and Gin Festival, and the return of last year’s hugely popular Super Naweek (featuring Kurt Darren and co.). The next market will be held on the 3rd of February and is set to be held in conjunction with the Blythedale Wine Experience, sponsored by KWV. We’re excited to bring this palatable event to the public and hope to see you there for a delectable day out.
