Hop on your broomstick and head over!

Get ready to immerse yourself in the enchanting world of magic and mysticism at the Witch Market, the sister event of Witch School 2024. Held at the Hawthorn Arts Centre, this magical weekend promises an array of treasures and experiences for all witchcraft enthusiasts.

From potions to crystals, spell kits to psychic readings, the Witch Market showcases a diverse range of specialized vendors offering unique occult items and services. Whether you’re a seasoned practitioner or simply ‘witch-curious’, there’s something for everyone to explore and discover.

The Witch Market

  • June 15 and 16
  • 10am to 5pm
  • Hawthorn Arts Centre
  • Entry is free

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

Step into a realm where the mystical meets the mundane, and embark on a journey of self-discovery and enchantment. The ever-popular market is free to visit and it’s the perfect place to pick up some new potion ingredients, have your aura or tarot cards read and rub shoulders with the mystical community in Melbourne.

The Witch Market is part of the High Priestess Witch School 2024, which sees some of the country’s top spiritual teachers descend on the Abbotsford Convent for two days of classes and workshops aimed at heightening spiritual power.

Starting with Witchcraft 101, students will be able to take part in lessons on seasonal magic, spell crafting, potions, herbalism and symbology. If you’re thinking ‘that sounds a lot like Hogwarts’ well… you’re right.

This year, for the first time, Witch School will also be hosting a Witches’ Ball on the night of June 15, where Pagan types gather to dance, mingle and perform a ritual or two under the glowing moon. The masquerade will be serving delicious canapes and drinks and a grand prize will be awarded to the best costume of the evening.

If the occult is your thing, Hawthorn is where you’ll want to be this weekend.

Entry to The Witch Market is free with registration. Sign up here
