The beginning of an Auckland summer is marked by a few familiar things. The first swim, getting out the barbecue for the first time in months and spending the day at the iconic Gypsy Fair. An institution since 1990, The Original Gypsy Fair has been entertaining families for almost 30 years. It has a key few key spots, one of which is Harbourview-Orangihina Park in Te Atatu Peninsula.

Perfect timing just before Christmas, The Original Gypsy Fair brings an array of handcrafted, unique products that cannot be found anywhere else. Some are even made right before your eyes, as the talented artisans create works on the day. Pick yourself up stunning hand-blown glassware, intricate jewellery, tie-dyed apparel, crystals and gemstones.

For those looking for a souvenir from the day itself, there's hair braiding, tarot card readings and fun games for all ages to enjoy. There's always a range of carnival-style food and drink to keep you full as you relax and enjoy the live entertainment. Always a great vibe, this buzzing fair keeps the crowds coming year after year, no matter where they choose to dock.
