The 41st Annual Oxley Bush Market is planned for

Saturday 29th October 2022 at the historic Oxley Shire Hall (1875). 

Thousands of visitors flock to Oxley for this annual event. They wander among the stalls which boast a variety of home-made, home-produced, home-grown and new items. The event attracts stallholders from throughout the North East, as well as all corners of Victoria and southern New South Wales. As well as the enormous range of high quality goods on sale, visitors will be delighted by the variety of gourmet food on offer, the buskers, the rides and just the sheer activity and vibrancy of the event.

The market also has a fantastic raffle with over 30 prizes donated by local businesses from Wangaratta, the Milawa Gourmet and King Valley regions, ranging from accommodation vouchers to food and wine hampers. Please come along to the market and help support our local community by buying a ticket. 

The Oxley market is valued for the contribution it makes to many local fundraising groups, including schools, kindergartens, service clubs, fire brigades, the Cancer Council and the Royal Children’s Hospital Auxiliary.
