Into the Wilderness also features the Little Palais Circus tent, filled with circus, physical theatre and comedy, and a makers’ market lovingly curated by the good folks at Emu Plains Market / Untold Events Co showcasing the best in local art, craft and design.
This event is a picnic style - BYO event. Bring your blankets / chairs/ your snacks and beverages. Settle in for the day. We will have a selection of local food vendors on site and some of the best sampling of the Region via Emu Plains Market.
As dusk falls, Emu Plains will light up with colourful light installations from Playable Streets and Lantasia Lights, blending traditional lantern design, sculpture and illustration to create luminous pieces of art, courtesy of The Lanternist.
