CANCELLED Easter 2022
The 2022 Easter Fair is CANCELED due to the uncertainty the traffic light settings. This was an extremely difficult decision to make but it was to hard to predict if we would be able to hold an event at the scale we operate at. The committee will reassemble later in the year to discuss the event for 2023.
$2 entry per person (pre-schoolers free).
No dogs please.
From small beginning’s this has become Nelson Tasman region’s largest fair with over 10,000 visitors each year. The fair is the key annual fundraiser for Mapua Primary School and Mapua Playcentre and is run entirely by volunteers, overseen by the Mapua Easter Fair Charitable Trust.
Most years the fair has over 220 stallholders, made up of arts, crafts, garden, fairground and miscellaneous stalls, a school run café, second hand store and silent auction. In addition, the Playcentre opens its gates to provide a space for younger children to play and families to relax. We offer a full day of free entertainment on stage and other free activities. It’s a great day out catering for all ages.
‘Waste No More’ help at the four recycling stations ‘helping people put
their waste in the right place so we can recycle as much as possible’. Everyone is
encouraged to BYO coffee cup to use at the coffee vendors, BYO water bottle to refill and
BYO bags to carry all those goodies home from the white elephant and other stalls!
It will be a busy day around the village. A free bus shuttle will run from the Stafford Drive carpark. Check out options closer to the time.
