Since its inception, the Bribie Vibe Market, held at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre on the last Sunday of each month, has become a popular way for both locals and visitors to spend a Sunday morning and, as Christmas approaches, marketgoers will have the opportunity to visit the Vibe Markets twice in as many weeks.

As well as the normal event on November 25th, there will be a special Christmas Vibe Market on Saturday, December 8th and organisers have told me that, as well as the usual variety of stalls selling homemade craft and food items, Santa will be in attendance and local photographer Ian Jennings will be on hand to take photos of the family with Santa. Of course, there will be lots of activities for the kids including train rides and gem fossicking at the Gem Club.
Anyone who is feeling a bit peckish will be able to satisfy their hunger at the Vibe Café and there will be entertainment by the Caboolture Community Choir and the Bribie Island Country Music Club. The December market also kicks off the Arts Centre’s thirtieth-anniversary celebrations which will feature a week of great exhibitions and other activities.
