The Summer Fair

Waihi Beach Summer Fair is an annual event and it is held at the amazing, beautiful, incredible Waihi Beach. Held for one day in the first week of January each year, the Summer Fair is the biggest event ever held at Waihi Beach. With over 200 stalls there is something for everyone.

The Summer Fair was held for the first time on the 7th of January 2016. 

12,000+ shiny, happy people came and soaked up the vibes and shared some happy vibes of their own and it was fab :)

Run by a team of 1 plus a few more amazing helpers on the day the Summer Fair was borne from a desire to have a space and place for the locals & our visitors to soak up some community spirit and to support the clever people who make and sell quality goods. Sustainability is a big deal and the Summer Fair is focused on waste minimisation, reusing, recycling and supporting 100% Kiwi made.

Keeping-it-real and home-made :)

Have had so much fantastic feedback from so many people from all walks of life and truly you all should feel proud as what has been said about the organisation of the summer fair, from how all the stalls were placed , how all the food areas were located at the entrance and laid out, the space between all the different stalls, the diversity of stalls and what was on offer to buy, in a nut shell, EVERYTHING was SUPERB!!!! AND They would LOVE TO SEE IT BACK NEXT YEAR....Tremendous job well done accolades to all who helped with the organisation and just getting off the ground - we applaude you!

Thank you so much for an awesome event! So much awesomeness in one place, has to be one of the best Fairs I've been to. Can't wait for the next one!!

The Summer Fair at Waihi Beach today was worth going to. there were good quality food and craft stalls, bouncy castle and lots more. Well laid out and organised. Only problem it was so successful that it was packed! Well done the organisers. Hope its on again next year.

Awesome day out, so many great food and craft stalls and loads to keep the kids entertained :) The seafood paella was the best we've ever tasted yum!!!

Thanks so much to Kelly and the rest of the WBSF team for organizing such a fantastic event yesterday. Really well marketed and organized. Looking forward to next year! Thanks again smile emoticon
