The Bathurst Heritage Trades Trail is set to return in April for the first time in two years, after COVID cancelled last year's event.
As in previous years, the event will be centred around the Bathurst Agricultural Research Station, but to comply with COVID safety, the remaining attractions will be housed at the Bathurst Showground rather than smaller venues around town.
Mayor Bobby Bourke said the event offers visitors and locals a unique cultural experience that gives insight into our rich past.
"The event offers a fascinating chance to see, feel and experience how everyday items were made before the modern luxuries we are afforded today," he said.
"It's important to preserve the trades and crafts that shaped the history and culture of Bathurst, Australia's first inland European settlement."
Over 120 local and guest artisans will demonstrate rare trades that helped build the Bathurst region, including blacksmithing, saddlery, dry stone walling, whip making, glass artistry, tapestry, embroidery, carpentry and joinery, violin making and more.
The event will be held on April 10 and 11. Early bird tickets are currently available for $15 from www.bathurstregion.com.au/bathurst-heritage-trades-trail.
