||The 11th Kapunda Farm Fair will be held at the Kapunda Harness Racing Complex on Friday/Saturday 13th/14th April 2018. We extend a warm welcome to our regular exhibitors and to those partaking for the first time.
Exhibitors will note that site and other fees remain as they were since 2012 in acknowledgement of the prevailing tough economic conditions facing all business.
Admission charges also remain at $10 as they have for many years, it is noted some field days charge $16 with no concessions applying. Attracting more crowd numbers is our aim.
Since our successful 2016 event, crops have been excellent with good rains.
The Kapunda township, with history galore, is on the brink of expansion to a degree not seen before. A new supermarket to be built soon, J.T.Johnson and Sons have spent millions on a new pellet mill, and the Kapunda Bowling Club has relocated to an undercover facility (10 synthetic rinks) at Dutton Park, just to name a few. Millions of dollars of developments have created many new jobs in construction and on completion.
We anticipate being able to expand our machinery displays and are reaching out to every state to bring new exhibitors and interest to our growing event. We are blessed with a level and easily accessible site with ample, close, and free parking for our patrons. Fine weather will ensure another good result for all concerned.
A message we are keen to promote is that this is much more than a Farm Fair, it has something for Dad and Mum and the children of all ages. Entertainment is in the process of being finalized and will be more than as in the past. Given good weather, the 2016 crowd of 7,000 will be surpassed.
As usual, we ask exhibitors to book early to get the best sites, and to book their accommodation needs. The adjoining Kapunda Tourist Park has excellent cabins and powered and unpowered caravan sites available. Phone contact is (08)85662094 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is always fully booked.
The Kapunda Farm Fair organizer and staff pride themselves in looking after our exhibitors, you are assured of our very best endeavours. Welcome all.
