JARMARK 2018

JARMARK/JARMOK is a traditional Czech and Slovak folkloric market that gives members of the Czech and Slovak community an opportunity to buy & sell their products and produce, to promote authentic Czech and Slovak goods and to experience some of the traditions typical for markets in many Central European regions.

JARMARK/JARMOK 2018, held here in Melbourne for the second time, will take place on Saturday 27 October 2018 from 11am to 4pm at Sumava Peksa Park in Belgrave South, a beautiful place that is dear to the Czech and Slovak community.

The event will offer food, beverages, hand-made products to the visitors and a cultural program.

The date 28 October 2018 is a very special date for all "Czechoslovaks" as it marks the 100th Anniversary of the first Czechoslovak Republic! And what a better way to celebrate this beautiful anniversary than with a traditional Czech & Slovak art, music, drinks and food!
