Guide to Artbox 2018: #OOTD spots, what to eat and buy

Brave the crowds and treat yourself to some Instagrammble snacks, locally made handicraft and more


The most Instagrammable pop-up market is back – that's right, we're talking about pastel shipping container shops decked out in fairy lights, airmocks to lounge on and lots of photogenic #OOTD spots all around. Artbox is back bigger and better (for real) because this year's edition is almost three times the size of last year's with over 400 retail and food & drink stalls, including a fun zone (there are a foam ball pit and old-school arcade, you guys). Here's what to expect.

Artbox is on at Bayfront Event Space from May 25-27 and June 1-3 from 3pm to 11pm.
