Twilight Dinner Markets back by popular demand

After its popularity during this year’s Festivals on the Foreshore, the Twilight Dinner Markets will become a regular event on the first Sunday of every month.

From December through to April, the community will be able to enjoy a variety of delicious food options whilst taking in live music on the Foreshore as part of Sundays by the Sea.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the event will return due to positive community feedback.

“The community has spoken and we have listened,” he said.

“We saw such a huge turnout for the twilight dinner markets during Festivals on the Foreshore that we wanted to make it a regular occurrence on the City’s events calendar.

“I’d like to thank the community for their feedback regarding the event during Festivals on the Foreshore and we hope they will continue to show their support.” 

The event will be presented in partnership with the City of Greater Geraldton and local business It’s All Sorted.

It’s All Sorted owner Emma Howell said she predicted the markets would be just as successful as earlier in the year.

“We coordinated the Twilight Dinner Markets during Festivals on the Foreshore and I had so many people asking if we could make it a regular thing,” she said.

“With support from the City we have been able to make that happen and I would encourage everyone to head on down to the Foreshore on the first Sunday of every month to enjoy the markets.”

Mayor Van Styn said the markets were just another way the City was activating the Foreshore.

“We’ve seen some great crowds on the Foreshore for Sundays by the Sea and we want to leverage the amazing location,” he said.

“We want to continue to host events on the Foreshore that will bring the whole family down.”

The Twilight Dinner Markets will kick off on Sunday 4 December from 5-8pm at Stow Gardens on the Foreshore.
