The Extravaganza Fair is a family affair, it is a free entry, fun day out with something for everyone. We bring marvellous family shows, live music and entertainment on our very own Extravaganza Stage and invite local performers to join us too. We have around 35 interesting and unique stalls, with our stall holders helping us to achieve our vision. They individually bring their own style, craft and business and their dues support our performers and the maintenance of props and equipment that we bring to the 32 different towns we visit each year.

There is cool and interactive stuff for kids; we bring back the ‘old school fun’ through sack races, tug of wars, horse derby’s, 4 man ski races etc., with prizes to be won for all. Kids toys like hola-hoops, devil sticks, balancing planks and building blocks lay waiting to be picked up by roaming children and the chill zones (bean bags, picnic tables and sun shades) create a relaxed atmosphere that encourages people to stay all day.

There’s a selection of healthy food and drink options or one can also indulge in ‘classic fair’ treats. Loads of fabulous, unique and interesting shopping, rides, food, readers, kids fun and unique NZ Tiny Homes. This includes an open home and information on solar power, alternative living and waste management. We strive to be a fun and sustainable event that encourages communities to interact with music, arts and one another.
