What is The Lil Flea? 

As the second half of the name suggests, Lil Flea is one of the most curated flea markets in the country, organised during the year in a few major cities of the nation. However, contrary to the first half, there is nothing little about the flea festival! Lil Flea is organised with a great deal of effort, careful thought and creativity with the objective of supporting quality home-grown brands, independent artists and authentic interaction within the community.

 

 

It is a hub for unique, quirky products, cherrypicked carefully from the best of the lot! Lil Flea aids you in discovering products, fashion and styles that fall outside the boundaries of convention and typicality. If you enjoy spending hours scrounging for exclusive products, artefacts and trends in the streets of the city and snatching them up at awesome bargain deals, the Lil Flea is nothing short of paradise for you! Contemporary outfits, quirky bags, handmade jewellery or printed shoes, you should be hopping, shopping and never dropping at the Lil Flea!

In addition to offering a splendid flea shopping platform to the general populace, the Lil Flea also offers a vast variety of delectable dishes, experimental meals and fusion food. Yummy desserts, healthy bowls or spicy street food, whatever gets your stomach rumbling, the Lil Flea has it in stock for you! In addition to grub, the Lil Flea is also a hub for pubs! The festival bar will have options ranging from the best microbreweries in the city to classic cocktails, sangrias, and wines! Need more motivation? Drinking games with interesting strangers!

Note-worthy Points 

  • If you wish to partake in the open-air movie screenings, it is advisable to make bookings at the earliest. They have limited headphones, and might run out soon! 
  • Remember to carry a valid government-issued photo ID proof, without which you will not be allowed entry!
  • Children below the age of six can walk in for free and individuals under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult guardian at all times
  • Forget what's popular or mainstream before arriving at the Lil Flea! 
  • Be dressed at your eccentric best and keep an eye out for the Lil Flea paparazzi! 
  • If you have an ardent love for nature, the Lil Flea offers you the chance to collect free seeds or adopt some little plants! 
  • With heaps of interactive games and activities (Think giant Zenga!), the Lil Flea can be the perfect opportunity for you to socialise with some interesting city folks! 
  • Lastly, the Lil Flea might be the happiest flea festival, but the law of the land prevails. You can only access the festival bar if you are above the legal drinking age and people in an inebriated state might not be allowed entry.
