Discover the Heart and Soul of Umbala Events:
Founded in early 2015 on the Central Coast, Umbala Events stands as a tribute to creativity and community spirit. As a small, locally owned business, we are deeply rooted in our commitment to bringing vibrant experiences to our beautiful region.
Our Colourful Beginnings:
Umbala's journey began with a vision inspired by the lively hues of South Africa. Drawing from the richness of Fairtrade products from our home country. This essence led us to the name "Umbala," which beautifully translates to "colour" in the Zulu language.
Crafting Markets and Community:
From our origins as stallholder, we recognized a unique opportunity at Umina Beach. There was a missing element; a gathering place where creativity and culture could flourish. In December 2015, the inaugural Umina Beach Markets was born. A resounding success, it was evident that Umina craved a regular local event that embodied the spirit of community.
As the seasons unfolded, so did our market. Each passing month saw growth and vibrancy, as Umina Beach Markets became a beloved fixture on the Central Coast's calendar.
In 2018, fuelled by the same passion, we introduced a sister market: Woy Woy Waterfront Markets. Located at the stunning Woy Woy foreshore, this market is dedicated to products and small businesses with a creative touch.
Embracing Change and Inspiring Futures:
Umbala Events thrives on evolution, driven by the pursuit of fresh inspiration. We continually seek new avenues to enrich our community's experiences at the markets.
Our story is a testament to the remarkable synergy between creativity, community, and the pursuit of shared experiences.
