Village fair today in Whitby

Media release – Whitby Village Fair
The first Whitby Village Fair will be held on Saturday between the hours of 10am – 3pm, on the grass areas beside the Whitby Village Lagoon.

A special feature is the focus on quality stalls. Stallholders can only display or sell quality, hand-made, local, or NZ crafts; unless they are locals, who can join in with any of their contributions!

The Fair will have a range of food stalls, and a variety of childrens’ rides and activities. Entry is free.

Community participation of all kinds is especially encouraged and welcome. Local groups are invited to have a stall, or to perform. Information stalls are free, and charity and local community group stalls are half price. This is a great chance to promote your club to prospective new members, show the community your dance moves, share your singing talent, demonstrate your culture’s costumes and dances, raise funds with a jumble stall, and a range of other opportunities to share your activities with the rest of your community.
