Khandallah Village Fair 2010

Khandallah Village Fair
Sunday 12 December 2010

The annual Khandallah Village Fair will take place on Sunday 12 December 2010, between the hours of 10am-3pm, in Khandallah's main shopping street Ganges Road.

The Fair will have a variety of stalls, food, entertainment and activities. Community participation of all kinds is especially encouraged and welcome.

A unique aspect of this event is that non-local stallholders can only display or sell quality and hand-made local or NZ crafts. This event focuses on quality stalls. Community information and display stalls are free, so the community is encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to share your hobbies, recruit new members, and raise funds.

Food stalls are being required to use only biodegradable containers and cutlery for sales. There is a good range of biodegradable options for take-away foods now, so there is no need to have all that single-use plastic ending up at the landfill! Recycling bins are always provided beside all the waste bins.

This year, we include the Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars! talent contest for primary school aged children. Any style of performance is acceptable. The competition raises funds for local schools – every performance earns the performers' school a donation of $10, plus the overall winner's school from each event receives a $100 cash first prize as well. Winners also receive prize packages on the day, donated by local businesses and shops.

Only primary schools within Khandallah are eligible for the performer donations and first prize. However, any performer can compete, no matter where they are from. There is a cap of 20 performers, or $200, on the number of performance donations any one school can receive. The first prize donations are in addition to this limit.

Judges include other stage performers, local performance school instructors, and guest VIPs. Stage, sound system, and stage staff are provided at each event.

The stage entertainment schedule is:
10am fair opens
10.30am Zumba Fitness demonstration – join in!
11am Elvis lives again! Local entertainer Glenn Sullivan re-lives the legend
12 noon Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars heats
1.30pm Twinkle Twinkle final
2pm local melodic pop-rock band Monroe
3pm Fair finishes

Entry is free. If the weather is poor on Sunday, the event is cancelled, sorry, no postponement date; call 384-1998 from 7am on the day for cancellation details.

Stall and performer applications, along with general event information, are available from
Martin Wilson; 384-1998, 021 64-1998; PO Box 11-297 Wgtn 6142
