Touch of Tupare class on Waitangi Day

Taranaki people can celebrate Waitangi Day (Thursday 6 February) in style at Tupare, one of New Plymouth’s premier heritage properties.

Tupare’s stunningly landscaped gardens will be the venue for a Garden Fair from 10am to 1pm, featuring live music, children’s activities and gourmet food stalls. It will be preceded by a guided walk from 8.30am, and there will be free tours of Tupare’s distinctive Chapman-Taylor house half-hourly from 11am to 12.30pm.

“Tupare’s Garden Fairs are always popular – thousands turned up to the New Year fair, and as always, there will be something for everyone on Waitangi Day,” says Greg Rine, Regional Gardens Manager for the Taranaki Regional Council.

Garden Fair attractions will include:

• Live performances by local duo Juliet McLean and Missie Moffat throughout the day plus “pop-up” performances by local artists.

• Family activities on the river flat – bumper balls, Gymnastica and tightrope walking, stilts, and face painting.

• A range of food stalls offering great coffee, butties, gourmet barbecue, guacamole, gelatos, wine, vegetarian feasts and more.

• Stalls selling vintage keepsakes, handmade garden art and gifts.

“Come for lunch or picnic by the river, stroll the gorgeous gardens or relax and be entertained,” says Mr Rine.

The Waitangi Day events are part of a year-round programme of workshops and other events at Tupare, Pukeiti and Hollard Gardens, the three heritage properties owned and administered by the Taranaki Regional Council on behalf of the people of the region. For more information, see www.tupare.info, www.hollardgardens.info and www.pukeiti.org.nz. Social media users can also follow the Taranaki Regional Council gardens on Facebook (TaranakiRegionalGardens) and Twitter (@TaranakiRG).

The Tupare guided walk at 8.30am on Waitangi Day is also part of the New Plymouth District Council’s Summer Guided Walks programme.
