ADVENT FAIR: 10am - 3pm. Rain or Shine

The Advent Fair at Titirangi Ruldolf Steiner School is a long-running, parent-led fundraiser. No ordinary school fair, visitors have the chance be involved in creative advent activities; making wreaths, dipping candles, rolling beeswax candles and purchasing advent calendars with nativity scenes made from natural materials.
For small children the fair is a magical experience of children's only space, including meeting the Fairy Queen, the children's bazaar, the children's cafe and the fishing game. For the more adventurous there are field games and the best flying fox in West Auckland! More importantly, for food lovers, the best ever food! There is a cafe serving meals, sushi, curries, salad, pizza, fruit salad, desserts...there will also be a sausage sizzle, traditional rolled ice cream stall, crepes, barista coffee...and did I mention the music? Live music from some of the best musicians the west has to offer, Sean Donnelly sjdnz.bandcamp.com/, Mr Roberelli www.mrroberelli.co.nz/ and more.
Other great activities include 'The Silent Auction' with amazing products, services, art, and helicopter rides on offer, 'Mystery Ketes' with surprise goodies such as vouchers and local products all worth more than the cost of a bag, 'White Elephant', lucky dip and raffles, not to mention the almost 70 stalls selling amongst many other products - jewellery, clothes, toys, xmas decorations, fairies & angels of wool, handmade soap & shampoo, art tiles, wood turned items, henna tattoos and hair braiding.
The fair is a 24 year old cultural icon of West Auckland, with nationwide fans (as far as Nelson!). A guaranteed fun day for all members of the family.
