MAJOR EVENTS FUND
Supporting major events such as the Kāpiti Food Fair has been identified as a key action in supporting long term economic development for the Kāpiti Coast District Council. Large events like the Food Fair attract visitors, which in turn generates spending at local hospitality and retail businesses, accommodation and on tourism activities. Kāpiti Food Fair has been a recipient of the Kāpiti Major Events Fund since 2016. This recognition and their financial support is hugely appreciated by the Fair as we believe our mahi does bring visitors to Kāpiti and therefore contributes to the local economy. In 2020, the total turnover in Kāpiti from the Fair was estimated to be $1,248,63. The Fair received $25,000 from the Fund in 2020, and that resulted in an $8.70 return on investment for every dollar given to to the Fair. Kāpiti Major Events Fund requires at least a 5 to 1 return on investment from applicants.
