We are aiming to be a sustainable event. We have banned all one-use plastic bags way back before the law came in including no plastic bottles. Instead we offer canned drinks we know are recycled. Or freshly made drinks in bio cups. Remember to pack your reusable water bottles and fill up at our Free Water Station. All keep cups are accepted. Only paper straws are used if needed. In this day and age, every little bit helps.
We have our very own Recycle Centre Trailer with recycle warriors on site sorting and helping you to use the correct bins. Aiming to become 'carbon neutral' by donating to tree planting charities at the end on each season. (See our FB page for details).
All dates and towns will be listed here and on our Facebook page. Join our group page and share your photos.

(Please note: we are a travelling community, together creating a full event. Unfortunately, we don't take casual stall holders but are always open to welcoming new full-time members to this unique and fun tour of NZ.)
