Where we are now
Kylie Wheatley comes from a Hospitality background. After completing a traineeship with the Sheraton Hotel group in Brisbane and Perth Kylie worked for Frasers Restaurant, Cable Beach Club, Chianti on Collins, Indiana Teahouse, Sheraton Vancouver, to name a few, working primarily in Fine Dining, Functions and Events. After many years running market stalls as a side hobby, including food, jewellery, and clothing Kylie launched the Village Art Markets in the centre of Fremantle. The market was a hub for the whole community and White Ribbon Day, Harmony Day , International Women's Day, and many other events where held within the market. Kylie created a Tomato Festival to celebrate the Italian, Portuguese and Croatian heritage in Fremantle. Lonely Planet TV used the market as their backdrop to visiting Fremantle and Kylie became their guide for Fremantle as featured on 6 Degree's travel series. The arrival of Blues and Roots Festival to Fremantle saw Kylie leap into the WA Festival and Event scene and she began to provide markets, food markets and back stage decor to WA Music Festivals and Events.
After many years working in some of WA's biggest Music Festivals including Fairbridge Festival, Laneway Festival, Blues and Roots, Groovin the Moo, North West Fest, Southbound and One Movement, Kylie has returned to her love of local community events. Providing event management, consulting, styling and markets to many local events, Kylie also creates unique funeral services, wedding planning, and assistance to event producers.
After 10 years at Fremantle College we opened Freo Farmers Market at Bruce Lee Oval on the 8th January 2023. The yearly calendar also includes International Women's Day Events, Coogee Beach Markets, Pop Up events at Fremantle Port, City of Cockburn Events and City of Fremantle Events. Weekly you will find Kylie down at Freo Farmers Market in the heart of her community supporting local producers, creatives, and not for profits.
If you need a barista, musician, speaker, celebrant, event location, artist, designer, sound engineer, stage manager, and site facilities. Kylie knows her local community and loves consulting on events and making sure its a huge success!
