Buda's annual Traditional Arts Fair is coming to Castlemaine on Sunday 25th November for 2nd time, showcasing traditional arts, cooking and gardening in as many and varied forms as possible, in the spirit of the Leviny daughters.
Hilda Leviny, the youngest of the Leviny women who lived at 42 Hunter St Castlemaine until she died in 1981, held a fundraising event every year at Buda Historic Home and Garden around this time and in her legacy we’re opening the doors of Buda for this exciting open day.
