Nau Mai, Haere Mai Festival 26 November 2016
Another great Festival is coming your way. Get your Christmas shopping off to a great start. Let your feet tap to the gifts from our Music Stage. Let your Tum enjoy the food we get together. Let your face smile at the fun things to do around the site.
We have continued to put our work into supporting 250 creative stalls producing original items rather than bring you more cheap imported goods that bombard you every day of the week. We support competition that nurtures personal development. We are not keen on taking from our artists and producing cheap mass produced inferior copies of their goods. We hope you will support this approach and buy something unique and beautiful in our market zone. You can even have a look at some of the stalls online before Festival day.
The festival had its 30th year last year. Since 1984 locals initiated a peaceful and fun filled day: From the locals to the locals.
We are a non for profit trust. All proceeds flow back into the organising next year’s festival or go to a local fundraiser.
Love the Earth, Love You, Smokefree, Be Mindful of Planet Litter, Balance your Drugs and Alcohol, Achieve Your Best, Have Fun, Find Kind, Celebrate Our Community, He Aha Te Mea Nui, Ole a le Mea e Auptio Ona Tuua, The Power of You.
