Do you ever get nostalgic for the excitement of school fetes, but sans the dorky talent competitions and your mum hawking homemade jam by the gym? Well, this might be the just the event for you.
Turn Out is a fete made for grown-ups, rather than kids under 12. Run by Decode Media, the event will take over Eveleigh's Locomotive Workshop from 5–9pm on Friday, October 26 and 10am–5pm on Saturday, October 27. There'll be a bar instead of pony rides, and, rather than pancake stalls, food varying from Asian-style snacks to sweet treats.
The indoor jungle vibes will be high with numerous plant stalls, and market stalls selling homewares, jewellery, and clothing – much cooler wares than you would have found back at your primary school fete (most likely). Add DJs and a bunch of record shop pop-ups to the mix — and some old-school arcade games — and you've got one very un-daggy organised event to spend your weekend at.
There'll be talks and workshops as well, so you can turn your Saturday brain to learning about sustainable fashion, kokedama, floristry and book-binding. Spots are limited so make sure you RSVP to the event to stay up to date with registration details.
