Mandeville Craft Festival is a lovely relaxed day for all and is not to be missed…… 2021 is our 10th ANNIVERSARY!!!!

We are looking forward to rolling out the Stories about our “little Rugby Club fundraiser for our U14.5 Touring Teams”, that has grown into an Annual Event for our Club, stallholders, musicians, a couple of selected community groups as well as all the lovely people that attend our Event!!

Come and experience the atmosphere, colour and excitement of a Country Fete just minutes from the city in North Canterbury’s premier sports park. Manicured fields with established shelter trees make this the ideal venue for a large scale outdoor craft festival.

Our event is growing every year and currently features over 130 top quality arts and crafts stalls.  Live music plays while you wander amongst these gorgeous stalls. 

In 2020 we successfully introduced a “Shop & Drop” tent where (for a small donation) you can leave your bags with us so you can continue to browse the stalls ……then head to the Food Vendors for some scrumptious lunch. 

What’s for lunch?…..to name a few we have Mexican, BBQ Meats, Gourmet Burgers, Sushi, Hot Potatoes, Dumplings, Salads, and a sausage sizzle for the kids – we have options for all tastes.  Then for something sweet you could try pancakes, waffles, ice creams and for those that are thirsty there is hot and cold drinks, juices, smoothies, soft drinks and the bar is open….there is so much choice.  

You could then head back in and revel in the exciting array of stalls, you will find the ones you love and discover new favourites…..

If you prefer to relax after lunch, stay on and listen to the lovely music on offer.

We love organising this annual event and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
