SOLAS: Car Boot Sales, Farmers Market & Great Family Food
Hectic Weeks @ SOLAS
It’s been a whirlwind of activity at SOLAS in recent weeks, with exciting events and bustling crowds. From hosting French Ambassadors to welcoming Forest Fest attendees seeking a relaxing break in our fantastic covered food courtyard, shop, and retractable roof plants area, there’s been no shortage of fun and enjoyment.
Car Boot Sale Returns: this weekend brings back one of our most popular events, the car boot sale. This event never fails to draw large crowds of both exhibitors and visitors to SOLAS. David Maher of SOLAS explains, “It truly is a great circular economy event, offering a low-cost and fun family day out. By having events like these alongside our shop, food court, playground, and plants area, we can ensure that everyone has a great time, regardless of the weather.”
