2- Payment is at the end of the registration using Paypal. You can use your Paypal account or a credit card when directed to the Paypal site.

Terms and Conditions

Site Conformation

Successful site applicants will be confirmed by late October, 2019. Sites will only be confirmed if payment has been made and registration forms have been completed in full. If unsuccessful, stall fees will be refunded. 


Cancellations, by the stall holder after November 15th 2018, are NOT entitled to a refund unless the site can be resold. The event will commence regardless of the weather, so refunds are not issued due to weather.

Set-up & hours

The Festive Fete area will be open for set up from 7am on Sunday November 25th, 2019. We will, as usual, have a crew of willing helpers to assist with your unloading and set up. Please unpack your vehicle and remove it as quickly as possible so that traffic flows smoothly. Please do not breakdown your site until 3:30pm. NO VEHICLES ON SITE UNTIL 3:30PM.

Powered sites

Stallholders must specify power requirements on the registration form. There will be no excess power points on the day. Stallholders requiring power must provide their own certified extension leads and safety equipment.

Food Vendors

If you are a food vendor, you are responsible for your own certificates etc. Also if you have a trailer type stall, please be accurate with the size site you purchase. Space is tight in the food court area. If you pay for a 3 x 3 m site you will get just that. If your trailer is more than 3m long (including the tow bar) you MUST book a larger site. If you arrive on the day and you can't fit onto the site you paid for you may be turned away and not refunded. We are very strict on this, as we have had unnecessary issues previously.


Stall holders are responsible for the removal of all their own rubbish.
