We are under no illusion the Fair is growing momentum and we want to continue exposing Kapiti as an ideal event location and to showcase local and NZ manufactured food & beverage, related F&B products and a variety of ready to eat foods to enjoy on the day.
In 2016, the Fair hit the top 20 NZ food festival list which is super exciting, motivating and supportive of our growth strategy - http://www.stuff.co.nz/life-style/food-wine/food-news/83854417/new-zealands-best-20-food-festivals
This Fair is a commercial event however we have a social agenda too. On the day, the Fair is supported by Kapiti Rotary and 49 Squadron Air Cadets and in return for their services the Fair owners donate to the Kapiti Rotary Charitable Trust for distribution to local charities and to 49 Squadron.
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, 2019 will be no exception to this.
