The Burra Vintage and Antique Fair is back for 2019.

On May 4 and 5, Burra will play host to 33 dealers from across South Australia and Victoria, and with more stalls than ever before, there will be something for everyone.

With stallholders offering everything from dolls, jewellery, glassware, toys, tools, rustic treasures and fine porcelain you may need to stay the whole weekend to take it all in.

Dealers will be located in the Town Hall and School Gym. Entry is $8 and children under 16 are free when accompanied by an adult.

Doors open from 9.30am-4.30pm on Saturday, May 4 and from 10am-3pm on Sunday, May 5. To add to the fun there will be a whole town garage sale on Saturday too.

Maps of participating homes will be available in Market Square from 8am on Saturday morning or just keep an eye out for the yellow balloons that will mark the trail.

Saturday will also see markets set up on the lawn in Market Square so take the opportunity to grab some delicious local produce, buy some plants, jewellery, rustic garden ornaments or just enjoy the buskers.

After you've seen all the sights you can drop by the Kirrihill Wines stall and taste some Clare Valley wine. On Sunday morning there will be a giant trash and treasure auction at the Burra Golf Club.

Sellers can book a spot by phoning Gus Wenzel 0439 846 421.

The auction will get underway at 10.30am so come along and see what treasures you can find.

When you've finished looking at the antiques and collectables you can stop in for a meal or coffee at one of the excellent restaurants, cafes and hotels or take a look around the historic Market Square shops, visit the antique shops in Burra North or get your Burra heritage passport from the Burra and Goyder Visitor Information Centre (open from 9am-4pm Saturday and Sunday during the fair).

The beautifully renovated Burra Railway Station is definitely worth a visit and while you're in Burra North you can also visit the Bon Accord Museum, open from 10am both days.

The Burra Regional Art Gallery is another must see and offers a great array of contemporary and fine art.

Works by the Burra Quilters will be on display during the fair. For a weekend full of treasures, bargains and entertainment visit historic Burra where the past meets the future and enjoy all the fun of the fair.

The organising committee is proud to be working with their major sponsor AGL.

As part of the AGL Hallett Wind Farm Community Fund, AGL seeks to make a positive contribution to the communities in which it operates and to support local community initiatives and/or activities.

This year the Burra Vintage and Antique Fair was lucky enough to be a recipient of these funds and this has been a major factor in helping develop and promote the fair for the benefit of the local community.

The committee would also like to acknowledge the support of the Regional Council of Goyder and its contribution to bringing the fair to Burra each year.

Now in its 27th year, the fair could not have become one of this states premier antique events without ongoing support from the Council and its staff.
