ADVENT FAIR: 10am-3pm

This year is the 26th anniversary of our Advent Fair! What began as a small fair in 1989 when the school was located in Parau is now one of West Auckland's much-loved events.

People love the village atmosphere and travel from as far and wide to experience the good food, the great music, the unique activities and shopping! 

The day of festivities includes stalls, craft making, food, children's activities, storytelling, music, flying fox, and a wide range of stalls.

Visitors can get hands-on with craft activities such as making wreaths and dipping candles.

For small children the fair is a magical experience featuring children-only spaces including storytelling with the Fairy Queen, the children's shopping bazaar, the children's café and the fishing game.  Adventurous children can try archery, catapults and the best flying fox in West Auckland.

Music-wise there is a fantastic line-up of performers including Unity Pacific, a reggae/roots band featuring Tiggilau Ness (Che Fu's dad), The Tiny Kwelas, a South African jump n' jive band, Japanese drumming group Taimashii Taiko and Russel Scoones - The Singing Cowboy, plus fabulously talented students and parents including: award-winning DJ and producer SJD, The Grateful Dads,  the ever-popular Mr Roberelli, as well as Prayer Skinner / Richard Ingamells and the Three Strings Trio.

Over 60 stalls will sell jewellery, clothes, toys, christmas decorations, handmade soap, art tiles, woodwork and gift ideas inspired by nature.

In addition to barista coffee, crêpes, dumplings and special lunchbox stalls, the popular fusion-style café offers homemade sushi, curries, organic fare and much more.
