Kapiti Food Fair 2015 opens for vendor registrations

Kapiti Food Fair 2015 opens for vendor registrations

The Kapiti Food Fair 2015 is open for vendor registrations. Like in previous years, there will be plenty of ready to eat food, value add food products & related goods. “Last year we had 124 sites so we are working on the same number in 2015 as the Fair continues to position itself in the annual event calendar for Kapiti,” says Helene Judge, Fair Spokesperson.

Helene goes on to say that “making the decision to change the venue of the Fair to the Mazengarb Reserve was the right one as it proved to be an ideal location for vendors and visitors. It can handle growth for the future, meets event logistical needs and vendors have told us they will be back.”

The Fair will run the day before the popular Thorndon Fair in Wellington as a number of vendors are influenced to attend particularly if they are from out of the region and they are registered to be at the popular Thorndon Fair.

The date for the Fair is Saturday 5th December 2015 at Mazengarb Reserve – note your calendar now and tell all your friends, family and colleagues to come for a great gastronomic day out.

Previous Fairs have attracted vendors selling a variety of artisan and commercial food and beverages including chocolate, sweets, jam & condiments, sauces & dressings, dips & pesto, preserves, breads, baking, wines, beer, liqueurs, fruit juices, olive oils, ice cream, coffee, meat, honey, fruit & vegetables and a variety of ethnic foods. 2015 will be no exception to this.

Vendors wishing to book a site should go to the Kapiti Food Fair web site –

“The other really exciting news says Jeanine van Kradenburg of PartyPefect Catering, “is that, popular television and radio cooking personality Annabelle White ( who is synonymous with good food and fun times in the kitchen has agreed to be our celebrity chef this year.”

Annabelle believes that keeping food simple, easy, “confidence building” and delicious, mixed with plenty of tips, funny quips and great recipes make for good times for family and friends. “We know that Annabelle will resonate well with visitors to the Kapiti Food Fair”, says Jeanine.

“An important decision has been made this year to boost regional marketing to increase visitor numbers. To achieve this we have restructured gate entry to be free for kids and $5 for an adult. The Fair traditionally operates a very lean budget which means limited promotion, however, if we want people to come from far and wide we need to tell them all about it”, says Thomas Thomas of Kapiti Cakes & Bakery.
