Local Events


6th & 7th October

8am – 4pm

Leura Village Fair, Leura Mall.

Leura Village Fair is one of our brigades’ major annual fundraising events. We have prizes to raffle off and bush fire safety information available.

“Brought to you by the Leura Village Association and held over two days, the region’s most colourful Fair sees over 120 stalls lining Leura Mall and extending into Megalong Street Carpark.

Shake off the winter blues and come and enjoy an array of street entertainment, food from around the world and an interesting selection of fashion, jewellery, homewares, plants, art, photography and fabulous gifts for the whole family.

Because of the festivities, Leura Mall will be closed to traffic for the weekend, however visitors will be able to travel to the Fair by train or drive and park in the streets surrounding the event.

Come along and be part of a great weekend!”. – Leura Village Association on Facebook
