The Lindfield Art Show will be on again from Friday 4th till Sunday 6th November with the incorporation of the Fair on Saturday 5th November. Come along for great display of works, and bring the kids down to the fair.
The Lindfield Art Show is one of the best-known art shows on the North Shore. The Art Show will be held over two days on the 5th and 6th of November 2022 at the Holy Family school grounds in Highfield Road, Lindfield. The show will kick off with an opening night cocktail party on the 4th of November at 7:30pm. The fair will be held on Saturday 5th November also in the school grounds and not to be missed.
Each year the funds raised help to improve the learning facilities and build infrastructure to help ensure that the school remains a vital part of the Lindfield community for generations to come. Whether it is the high quality art show, the diverse market stalls, the kidszone; carnival, or the delicious array of food, the Lindfield Art Show and Fair brings our school and local community together.
How it all Began
In 1976, the parents of Holy Family Catholic Primary School came together to organise a fundraiser centred around an exhibition of art. Known as the Holy Family Arts and Craft Show, the art show featured high quality art and craft and quickly became the major event on the school calendar.
Over the years, the show continued to expand and evolved to become the Lindfield Art Show and Fair. The art remained the focus but there were also book stalls, homemade delights, an endless supply of delicious cakes, a white elephant stall and handmade treasures like knitted socks, jumpers and scarves for sale. The kids enjoyed watching the teachers succumb to the dunking machine, while the parents sat hopeful for a win on the chocolate wheel. Everything was donated or made by the school community and parish.
Now in its 44th year, the annual Lindfield Art Show and Fair is the North Shore’s premier art show, with visitors coming from far and wide to enjoy a weekend of art, market stalls, food and entertainment.
The faces on the organising committee may have changed, but the commitment of parents, generosity of the community and school spirit continues to thrive.
