OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT with immediate effect, Kāpiti Food Fair has been rescheduled from Sat 4 Dec 2021 to Sat 3 Dec 2022. This is because of so much uncertainty, increasing case numbers and no understanding of how the vaccine certificate is going to operate. We cannot ask our own people, risk our reputation as a major event in Kāpiti and the Wellington Region, and risk the health of vendors and visitors by continuing in 2021. We will get through this and be back in 2022, ngā mihi Helene & Jeanine. xx
