Jumpers and Jazz festival favourite back by popular demand

MARKET stalls, performers and jazz musicians take over Warwick for the Jumper and Jazz in July with hundreds walking through Palmerin St.

The last weekend of the event will host the Stroll 'n' Swing market which will take over the main street.

Preparing for the biggest turn out yet, the market will stretch from Fitzroy to King Sts and feature three main attractions.

Clasps will be bursting at the annual Suitcase Rummage, which is returning to Palmerin St after a stint behind Town Hall last year.

Jumpers and Jazz sponsorship and volunteer coordinator Clare McHugh Von Stieglitz said the move would accommodate the large crowds.

”Being in an alley is cool but it becomes difficult when there's a thousand people in the space,” she said.

"Also the biggest feedback from last year was to bring it to the middle of town.”

With 30 vendors there will be plenty to search through, Mrs McHugh Von Stieglitz said.

"You get quite an array of items, everything from small antiques, hand made candles, pottery, crocheted clothing and art work,” she said.

After last year's success the Jazz Lounge will stay inside the Town Hall, visitors can enjoy wine, cheese and live music away from the cold.

Not wanting to miss out on all the excitement there will be a second stage towards King St delivering soulful tunes.

Topping off the Stroll 'n' Swing market will be a new attraction, a Celebration of Local Flavours.

"It's anything and everything locally produced, we'll have wine bars and food stalls along Palmerin St,” Mrs McHugh Von Stieglitz said.

"We're also looking at getting a celebrity chef for the day.”

The huge event is a great opportunity for foodies, bargain hunters and art lovers to try all things local.
