The Original Gypsy Fair – Est'd 1990

For 30 years in its current format The Original Gypsy Fair has been travelling NZ and we will be back in Wairoa on the Riverbank for our Third Fair of the 2019/2020 season.

Bigger, brighter, better. The Original Gypsy Fair has had some positive changes whilst maintaining its charm that it is well known for. A fun-filled day for the whole family with something for everyone, and entry is free!

As always we will be bringing you an expansive range of handmade products, some of which will be made before your eyes.

Watch our glassblower skilfully craft molten glass into works of art. Grab yourself a unique piece of jewellery and other items made from silverware. Ever seen a coin turned into a ring? Coin rings are available, maybe a ring with your birth year! There’s also a gorgeous array of items lovingly made from beads. Earrings, bracelets, necklaces, sun catchers, spiders, just to name a few. An expansive range of clothing and accessories are available, tie dye, upcycled, boho, hats, bags and more.
Get that tattoo you’ve always wanted. Tattoos by Jude.

Circus toys, Hula hoop, juggling, fire poi, comic art, face painting, airbrush tattoos, a unique obstacle bounce and new this year, challenge your mates on the gladiator. Test out your skills on the hover boards. Shoot for prizes or shoot for fun at the Shooting Gallery. Absolutely addictive and totally mind blowing are the words that describe a first for any NZ fair. Virtual reality!
