Quinninup Market Day
The Annual Quinninup Market Day was begun in 2001. It has evolved over the years to become an annual event on the local calendar.
Over the years the focus has been on providing free activities for children on the second Sunday of the third term school holidays. There are many local and visiting children in the area during this time and providing activities that are of no cost them, is our aim.
Money we raise from market stalls and food outlets, goes towards the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings in our care and of the walktrails in the area. The organisation and promotion of this event depends upon and involves volunteers both prior to and on the market day itself.
Our Market Day is only made possible through the support of grants and we have been very fortunate with Lotterywest and Healthways who are two of our most generous donors. Furthermore, Bannister Downs, Woolworths, Coles and Mount Barker Chickens have been staunch supporters as also the Cherry Box, Manjimup Meat Mart, Jackson's Food Supplies, and the Shire of Manjimup.
The 2021 Market Day will be held on Sunday 3rd October from 10 am to 3 pm. There are some new activities this year, a Welcome to Country Ceremony and mini golf for the children.
