This Saturday we can’t wait to launch the first of our yearly Summer + Christmas Market Series. The four dates are Newcastle’s most anticipated markets of the calendar year! 


For the first time in 2022, the Olive Tree stallholder community will be back on both sides of Civic Park! With 120+ amazing stalls it’s our biggest line-up so far in 2022!


We will be featuring a collective of talented debut creatives, guest makers and artists who only showcase at Olive Tree’s Summer markets, plus lots of exciting new work from your favourite regulars makers and creators- check out our sneak peaks below!


We know there will be lots of excited people to hear that Samba Frog will be playing from 12:30pm as part of our live music line-up. Get ready for joyous Brazilian percussion, samba, and drumming! Bring the kids, your market gang, and fur family members, and enjoy an exciting day out in Civic Park.

This stunning painting is called “Beautiful Spring” nguyaguyamilang.

Jade is joining the Olive Tree creative community for the first time on November 5th. Jade will be featuring at one market only as she has a new family member on the way! Make sure not to miss the opportunity of discovering her amazing work

Jade also supports students interacting with mentors, including mental health workers and police youth liaison officers, as part of the healing process and to embrace community.
