New Zealand's biggest and most popular country fair

The Christmas Country Fete


This means the Fete can now proceed, as long as we have not setbacks with regard to Covid-19 infections so STAY SAFE everybody!

With the cancellation of many of the bigger events in Christchurch before year-end (especially the A and P Show) The Fete could e the largest event to be held in Canterbury before Christmas.

Anyone still wanting a stall for this year’s Fete, please get your application in quickly, or email [email protected] for an application pack as soon as you can.

Our new venue will be awesome and will overcome the issues that were experienced last year.  This year the car park is beside the venue, great mobility parking, the strong mobile signal for EFTPOS machines and easier site access for stallholders.  Included in our ticket price this year is also entry to the fabulous Amberley House gardens for our guests to wander through at their leisure if they wish.

As previously advised, all Stallholder payments have been isolated and will be available for a refund should the Government impose any restrictions regarding Covid-19 which require the Fete to be cancelled so keep thinking positive people!

Tickets are about to go on sale and we expect great interest this year with everything that has gone on to date as we all need something to look forward to.

We have booked in fantastic weather for the 29th of October so to ensure a fabulous day for all attending.”
