Thorndon Fair 2019
More than 20,000 visitors are expected at this massive street fair.
This iconic Wellington street fair is a celebration of creativity, community and the historic charms of Thorndon. With over 20,000 visitors expected and 250 stallholders from across New Zealand involved, this will be a fair to remember.
Held on the first Sunday of December every year, the Thorndon Fair has been thriving annually since 1977. Expect to find a range stalls hawking everything from homeware, art, jewellery and crafts to books, clothing and Christmas gifts. Thorndon School will also be hosting a second-hand bookstall, quick-fire raffle and senior students stall for you to enjoy.
Of course, no fair would be complete without a delicious selection of food and beverage stalls. Fill up on steaming hot dumplings and spicy Mexican food or satisfy your sweet tooth with a plethora of baked goods and treats. There will also be freshly brewed coffee to keep you fueled throughout your busy day of shopping. Don't forget to check out the live Sound Stage performance and a range of kid-friendly activities throughout the fair.
In support of Thorndon School, all of the proceeds will go straight towards resources and funding for the local kids and teachers of Thorndon. Simply bring a gold coin donation and spend your Sunday morning browsing, buying and supporting local sellers for a great cause.
