The event has been planned and organised by enthusiastic young residents with support from the City’s Youth Services team.

There will be a variety of market stalls, fantastic entertainment, free activities and delicious refreshments for all to enjoy.

Market stalls showcasing eye-catching jewellery, inspirational art, soy wax candles, creative house plants and much more, will be managed by young people aged 13 - 25 years.

Fabulous free activities on offer include face painting, henna body art, a cuddly animal farm, bubble station and circus challenges.

Entertainment will be provided by talented local singers and musicians, while roving magicians will dazzle the crowd with their quick handed tricks.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the event was a way to acknowledge and celebrate the many contributions of local young people in the community.

“The City of Wanneroo is a young and vibrant place to live with people under 25 years of age accounting for 37 per cent of our population,” Mayor Roberts said.

“It is therefore vitally important that we support and encourage our young people and their endeavours.

“The Youth Market is a fantastic event showcasing the many talents of our City’s young residents and I encourage all members of the community to get involved in the celebrations at the Girrawheen Hub.

“I would also like to extend my thanks to the Department of Communities for their grant of $1,500 which has been used to organise the event.”

Youth Week is an annual celebration of the positive contributions of young people to Western Australia, running from 13 – 22 April.
