Beach art, craft on display at the fair
The Waihi Beach Art & Craft Fair is back again for the 14th year on Sunday, June 3.
Organiser Collen Low says it a “must do” event during Queens Birthday weekend.
Colleen says this year’s fair will have a large number of new stalls.
“We have again pushed the boat out and have recruited a huge number of new stall holders to the fair with very exciting and new crafts,” she says.
It is again fully booked with 85 stalls to be set up in the Waihi Beach Community Centre.
There is something for everyone from pet accessories, designer jewellery, clothing for the whole family, plus wooden items, art, photographic prints, soaps, herbal creams, graphic art, dolls, bears and toys and shabby chic homewares.
But there is even more Colleen says, such as candles and diffusers, trendy knitted garments, alpaca products and upcycled art.
Foodwise, homemade preserves will also be in store. “So many amazing all hand crafted items,” she says.
The annual event attracts over a thousand participants on the day.
The old style cafe´ will again be run by the volunteers from the Waihi Beach RSA providing refreshments while visiting the fair. “This is always popular and their food is great,” she says.
Colleen says what makes the event popular is its diversity and novelty.
“This fair is different every year so make sure you come back again and not miss all the new things and If you haven’t been before time to come see the fair every one talks about,” she says.
Fair is on June 3, 10am to 3.30pm. Entry: $4.
The fair attracts people from the Bay.
