Don’t let the cold keep you inside this long weekend! This Queen’s Birthday long weekend Canberra will be providing visitors with an abundance of activities fit for the whole family. Make the most of the break and get the family together to explore the best Canberra has to offer.
Start the weekend off and enjoy products from the best of Canberra’s creators, makers and innovators.
Handmade Canberra began with just 35 local designers and attracted a few thousand shoppers. But the event quickly gained traction among the creativity community.
Today, the market is bursting at the seams with talent; with more than 250 designers running stalls and tens of thousands of shoppers stopping by in search of something unique to wear, decorate their home or give as a gift.
Wandering through the stalls, you get to see proud smiles of the makers and the passion they have for their craft, whether it is jewellery, art, clothing or ceramics.
Once you’ve had a chance to wander around the markets, you can relax and enjoy the variety of gourmet food stalls on offer.

Every winter, truffle growers, wineries and restaurants around the region come together to celebrate the region’s truffle industry.
Event manager Julia Brown said the idea for the festival came about in 2009, when a local grower and foodie wanted to showcase the region’s truffles in some way.
Now, approximately 10,000 people take part in the different festival activities each year across participating venues.
This year, two tasting events held will be held at Westfield Belconnen and Woden. Taste fresh truffles, wine and produce at the market stalls and then watch live cooking demonstrations where local chefs will show different ways to utilise truffles.
1st June 2017 – 31st August 2017
The Truffle Festival will take place across various venues in Canberra.
You can purchase tickets to each event through the official website.
