Art Car Boot Fair
Famed festival atmosphere to the coastal art hub.
One of the best loved art events in the UK, the public get to meet and haggle with a stellar line-up of artists who produce works especially for the event and sell at astonishing prices. This exciting one-day fair takes place on Saturday 28th September, coinciding with the opening of the Turner Prize at Turner Contemporary, a new exhibition at Carl Freedman’s recently opened gallery and the Margate Now festival. Weekend visitors to Margate coming to look at these local shows will then have the chance to buy original artworks direct from leading artists at incredible prices. The theme of the Margate fair is love: love for the planet, love for each other and love of art. This is the second Margate edition of The Art Car Boot Fair after the sell out event in 2015 outside Turner Contemporary that saw queues stretch up to the LIDO and over 3000 people through the door.
