This February and March, Werribee Open Range Zoo’s lawns will come to life with the Village Market.
Stalls, performances, food, drink and craft activities will infuse each Sunday with all the colours of Africa in this brand new experience.
Peruse the market stalls for stunning beaded sandals, hanging planters, and African fabric tops and skirts.
Join South Sudanese Yirol dancers as they perform in traditional costumes, then dance to the beat of African drums.
Enjoy the rich smells and flavours of an Ethiopian coffee ceremony and taste speciality Sudanese tea.
Then watch animals emerge from stone through traditional carving demonstrations.
Village Market is included FREE with your ticket to Werribee Open Range Zoo.
