Market Day Series

Tanks Arts Centre presents Sunday Markets, held on the last Sunday of every month from April to November.

Tanks Monthly Markets are a unique slice of cultural life in the tropics and a must-do event on the Cairns calendar.

Everyone is invited to wander our leafy promenade, explore the site and take in the full complement of stallholders offering a blend of quality local art, craft, produce, vintage clothing, collectables and local natural health products.  Plus, enjoy local musicians, food and refreshments on this free, family fun day.

COST:             Free

TIME:              9am – 2pm

VENUE:         Tanks Arts Centre

Please note: the Collins Avenue bridge is closed for replacement so you will need to access the area via Edge Hill. This event is always popular. If you can’t find a park, try Greenslopes Street and enjoy a stress-free walk through Centenary Lakes.

The Body, Mind and Soul Market Day will be held on Sunday 25 June 2017.
