This Fair is a commercial event however we have a social agenda too. On the day, the Fair is supported by Kāpiti Rotary, No 49 Squadron Air Cadets, Paraparaumu College & Work Ready Kāpiti and in return for their services the Fair owners make a donation to each organisation.
The Fair is a pre-Christmas event providing a commercial opportunity for vendors to package their products for visitors to sample, buy gifts or to simply stock-up their pantry at home. Previous Fairs have attracted vendors selling a variety of artisan and commercial food & beverages, 2023 will be no exception to this.
