Important Information

  • The fair is for new and/or handmade items – no car boot sites will be available.
  • No stallholders are to sell any convenience food items including drinks and confectionery or run raffles without the express prior approval of the committee (this includes sausage sizzles).
  • Gates open for stallholders at 6.30 am and will be closed to incoming vehicles from 8.30 am, so you must be onsite prior to this time. 
  • The fair will be on rain, hail or shine, there are no refunds if you cannot attend on the day.

Stall Holder Parking

Swannanoa Domain on Tram Rd only has one entry/exit so it is critical to adhere to these points below:

  • Vehicles must be removed from the domain following unloading as soon as possible and no later than 9 am.
  • Parking is only available in designated areas outside of the Domain grounds. Traffic Management will direct you as you exit the Domain to stallholder parking. Please do not park anywhere else on the domain, your vehicle will be towed!
  • Vehicles may only remain on site if they are required as part of a stallholders set up and must be fully within the marked boundaries of your allocated site. 
  • All other stallholder vehicles MUST be REMOVED to the designated parking area - this is strictly enforced.


  • You may book up to three adjacent sites for your stall.
  • Price quoted is for a site only. It is the exhibitor’s responsibility to provide all equipment (including tables, gazebos) and materials for the exhibit.


In light of the possibility of cancellation of the 2024 Swannanoa Country Fair, registered stallholders will be given the opportunity to either request a full refund, to donate their stallholder fee to the school, or to transfer registration to the 2025 fair. Notification of your preference must be made within 14 days of the planned date of the 2024 Fair. Failure to communicate within that timeframe will result in the stallholders fee being donated to the school.
