It's been happening for 50 years on Easter Saturday. It's as popular as ever. Buderim's 2017 Easter Fair will again take place at the "arts precinct"; Memorial Hall, Craft Cottage, and the "village green" linking them on Saturday 15th April

The bunny trail leads from the carpark on Church street, or from the Buderim State School carpark on Main St, directly opposite. Head into Buderim Craft Cottage. Every workroom will be crammed with fine art, sculpture, jewellery, and crafty, unique pieces made some of the coast's most accomplished craft designers; calligraphers, quilters, textile and yarn artists, needleworkers, embroiderers, and ceramic artists.

Have a refreshment stop at the Cottage's shady "courtyard café" overlooking the garden and its sculptural installations, or over on the Hall veranda where the Buderim Lionesses will be serving up yummy cakes and sandwiches. While you sip and nibble, enjoy music from "Ragtag".

Then take a stroll through the "streets" of marquees set up in the gardens around the Memorial Hall, where you can buy plants, adult and kids fashion and accessories, home décor, locally made scented soaps and lots more. In the Hall itself, more stalls will sell greeting cards, gourmet foods, décor items and homewares.

Upstairs at the Hall, Buderim Library will be selling thousands of books at bargain basement prices. Fiction, non-fiction, reference books, gardening and cook books. Paperbacks and hard-cover editions. Even rare and first edition titles. The fair offers high quality and mostly locally designed and crafted goods and the emphasis is very much on "hand-made". Apart from the library books, second hand goods are not included.

The Fair is co-hosted by Buderim Lions Club, Buderim Library and Buderim Craft Cottage, although many other community groups run stalls at the fair to fund-raise for community projects.

Hours: Craft Cottage and Library sale 8am to 3pm ; stalls at Hall and in garden 8am to 2.30pm

Parking: Lions Club providing $2 supervised off-street parking in Church St carpark and at State School opposite, on Main St.
