The sounds of markets, live stage entertainment and kids’ activities will fill the air around Campbelltown CBD as part of Fisher’s Twilight Fair this Saturday, November 4.

The first weekend of the annual festival is always jam packed with events and Twilight Fair is one of the best attractions.

This year it will run from 4pm to 10pm in Mawson Park.

It will offer a great variety of food and entertainment plus the popular Kids Zone – complete with an inflatable obstacle course, local dance performances, stage entertainment and free kids activities.

Queen Street, between Broughton and Cordeaux Street, will transform into the Market Zone, bringing a wide variety of artisanal and festival goods to a walkable area of Queen Street.

“Fisher’s Twilight Fair is a chance for participants to slow the pace, and take in the sights and sounds of Campbelltown CBD,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“I strongly encourage all residents to take this opportunity to explore the walkable space and discover the many stalls and activities on offer,” he said.

Attendees will also get the chance to join a special guided tour version of the augmented reality ARt After Dark Trail, complete with collectable booklets and a list of Fred’s favourite food spots.

On November 4 and 5, keen roller-skaters and locals looking for a retro-themed night of fun will want to visit Retro Rollin’ at Dumaresq Street commuter car park.

The revamped version of last year’s popular Rooftop Rollin’ will embrace a nostalgic retro theme and give participants the chance to don their best disco-inspired outfits while they glide through an open air roller-skating rink, from 11am to 10pm.

Each session will offer a beginner level and experienced rink, with professional coaches available for participants requiring assistance.

 “Last year’s Rooftop Rollin’ gave our community a fun family event that appealed to amateur roller-skaters and newcomers alike,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“This year, Retro Rollin’ has increased the fun by providing a convenient CBD location and a popular disco theme that is set to bring the community together in celebration,” he said.

Participants can get involved without a booking at the Rock Up N’ Roll sessions from 11am to 3pm,
or book their place in closed ticketed sessions from 4pm to 10pm.

Night time sessions will feature a DJ playing retro tunes, with roaming freestyle performers and food and drink options.

Gear will be available to hire for free, though participants are encouraged to bring their own roller-skating gear if they prefer.
