Dragonfly Craft Fair

TACTILE ARTS’ ANNUAL DRAGONFLY CRAFT Fair returns – this year, in the brand-new, seaside location of the front lawns of Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT).

Tactile Arts General Manager Tessa Duke says the new location is an exciting change for the craft fair.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to have the Dragonfly Craft Fair in this incredible new space on the front lawns of MAGNT. It’s a beautiful, seaside, foreshore location, with stunning views right out front of MAGNT’s new Saltwater Café,” she says.

“The café’s had a makeover so it looks fantastic, and the quality of food and coffee being produced is really bringing it back to being a Darwin destination. On the day, Saltwater will operate from 8am to 5pm, with the café also doing a bit of an al fresco set up on the lawn, so visitors can head down for brekkie or some lunch outside – as well as in the café – between checking out the Dragonfly Craft Fair’s 70 plus stalls.”

The new space also brings about the possibility of more events within the area in the future.

“It’s been really nice to be able to form a bit of a precinct between Tactile Arts, MAGNT and the Ski Club, and it’s lovely to start this venue partnership off with the Dragonfly Craft Fair. I think it’s the beginning of something pretty awesome.” 

So head along to the Dragonfly Craft Fair, and enjoy it with a side of fresh sea breeze.
