Twilight Markets (Christies Beach)

Consultation has concluded

We are pleased to advise that the Twilight Markets proposal by TJS Events has been given the green light to operate markets over the summer period in Rotary Park, Christies Beach.

We were overwhelmed with the positive response received from the local community and businesses. More than 97% of respondents supported the Twilight Markets proposal, with specific feedback helping to shape the permit conditions for the markets.

The Twilight Markets aim to provide local businesses and market stallholders an opportunity to showcase and sell their wares.

The markets will operate from 5pm – 9pm on the following days:

Friday 21 December 2018

Friday 4 January 2019

Friday 18 January 2019

Friday 1 February 2019

Friday 15 February 2019

Friday 1 March 2019

TJS Events will require access to Rotary Park from 3pm – 10pm for set up and pack up on market days, however, access to Rotary Park and the playground will remain available and open for use at all times.

There will be market stalls, music, entertainment and much more.

BACKGROUND

We recently called for expressions of interest for proposals from interested parties to activate our foreshore and coastal areas for Summer 2019.

Some of South Australia’s most spectacular beach scenery is found in our city which provides an ideal setting for activation activities that expand the business landscape within the region,
increase visitation as well as promote the local economy.

Expressions of Interest were open until Monday 29 October 2018 and through this process, we received a formal proposal from TJS Events to host six Twilight Markets in Rotary Park, Christies Beach, over the summer period. See the proposed location map in the document library.

Once we identified that the Twilight Markets proposal met the criteria, we proceeded to community engagement where we asked the community to have their say on the proposal. Consultation closed on Friday 30 November 2018.
