The Under the Pines - Twilight Market has been held every January since 2017. The market provides tourists and visitors to Port Neill an opportunity to enjoy a variety of food stalls, amble through the local produce and craft stalls, whilst listening to live music by Sam Barlow, Joshy Willow and Brooke Newton.
After the overwhelming success of the first market, the committee has gone on to stage a further two markets in 2018 and 2019. Each event has grown in interest and the event attracts over 2000 people. The markets have raised considerable funds which have all be injected back into the Port Neill community.
An upgrade of the foreshore public toilets this year saw the 2018 markets donate $6,000.00 towards these improvements.
The 2019 markets raised over $13,000 and these funds are going towards adding new junior playground equipment on the foreshore. All funds raised from the markets go straight back into the Port Neill community.
The committee aims to cater for all ages with a wide variety of interesting and different stalls for visitors and holiday makers to our town, as well as give the local people a chance to show their talents, provide entertainment and good food.
The markets start at 4pm and run through until 10pm.
