It’s no secret that we consider Essendon Record Fair one of the Best in Australia! Mick Malone has worked tirelessly for many years establishing an amazing fair for both buyers and sellers. Unfortunately he received some terrible news last month regarding the venue and both fairs have had to be cancelled this year.
‘The Essendon Record Fair will not be held in 2016 due to the recent loss of venue space. This is associated with an impending large building redevelopment at the Association’s adjoining properties. There are no immediate plans to seek an alternative venue. The proposed 15 May Fair has been cancelled. The situation will be assessed again in 2017. I realise many regulars will be disappointed as we had a great atmosphere going for years. Thank you all for your long term support’ – Mick Maloney
Happy New Year People!
We’re happy to be able to announce the new dates for the Essendon Record Fair.
As many people already know, its one of the best fairs in Melbourne. There’s always a great mix of sellers (both local and interstaters) who bring a very broad selection of styles and genres. You never know what’ll be there and that’s what makes it great. You can count on seeing most of the classics, rock, pop & Australian etc, but you’ll also see a excellent selection of jazz, funk, soul, disco and more. In the past I’ve seen large collections of Hip Hop, Dance & Techno, Blues, rare Aussie Prog, and Metal too. It’s only a 20 min drive from the city and easy to get to via public transport.
Keep the dates free, if possible, it’s well worth a visit!!!
2015 Fair Dates:
May 31st (Sunday)
September 13th (Sunday)
If you collect vinyl and haven’t been to the Essendon Record Fair, you’ve been missing out!!! Featuring a great mix of Local & Interstate Sellers that range from Musicians, Dj’s, Personal Collectors, Music Stores and Record Dealers.
As far as the music on offer, there’s over 70,000 records (LPs, EPs, 45s), 1000s of CDs, Music Memorabilia, Rarities and more. Expect to see most Styles & Genres on the day, with prices varying from a couple of dollars to collectors prices. There’s always a stacks of bargains at each fair too (get in early for the best ones).

Essendon Record Fair (( 2013 ))
• Sunday, 21st of April
• Sunday, 15th of September
Just a quick update on the Essendon Record Fair for anyone that may not have heard the latest news. After many years of running one of Australia’s finest Records Fairs, Mick Maloney is taking a break due to recent personal & family commitments and will be unable to run the Essendon Record Fair in April this year. We thank Mick for all his hard work over many years and wish him all the best. We look forward the next Essendon Record Fair which will be held on the 16th of September 2012.
I wish to advise with regret that the Essendon Record & Cd Fair which is usually held in April will not go ahead this year. The good news is Sunday 16 September 2012 is locked in and will happen. So only one fair this year.
Thank you always for your support and my apologies for April.
All the best
