This Fair is a commercial event however we have a social agenda too. On the day, the Fair is supported by Kapiti Rotary, No 49 Squadron Air Cadets and Kapiti Coast Hockey Club and in return for their services the Fair owners donate to their organisations.
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, 2020 will be no exception to this.
Sponsored by ANZIL, Bayleys Real Estate Wellington, Flightdec, Kapiti Business Projects, Kapiti Coast District Council, Kapiti News, SignCraft Kapiti, The Hits, Tuatara Brewing.
Current recipient of the Domestic Events Fund and the Kapiti Mayor Events Fund and by numerous local business in time & reduced cost of services.
