The Kapiti Food Fair is an annual food & beverage event well known to vendors and visitors. We had 22,000+ visitors in 2019 so we are on a mission to reach that and beyond in 2020. Relax in the bar & wash down your foodie treats and shop to you drop for items to take home to your pantry or for gifts. Talented entertainers perform all day long.
