THE DAY HAS FINALLY ARRIVED
We are looking forward to seeing you all for our 24th Fete Day today.
Check our Facebook page for live up-dates and don’t forget The Fete is 10kms out of Culverden, not in Culverden itself.
See you soon.
One more Sleep to go
Well we are on the countdown now with one more sleep to go. We can’t wait to see what our clever stallholders have created for the day. Here are a few tips to make your day as enjoyable as possible:
1. Chelsea Winter Demonstrations are on at 10:45am and 2:45pm.
2. Make sure you bring plenty of cash, we have an ATM but it can get very busy.
3. The weather is looking a bit rainy so pack your gumboots and umbrellas just in case. The paddock is very sheltered and the ground hard so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
4. Don’t miss the new Art Hangar beside the Demonstration Tent. Sold paintings can be taken away from 3:30pm onwards.
5. Traffic can be busy so leave in plenty of time.
See you all soon!

Dominique “Eeekie” Heileson’s natural design talent was first noticed and nurtured during her high school years in Christchurch. After many years of trials and tribulations Dominique has found her true path – handbag design under the Eekie brand.
Now based north of the Bay of Islands, Dominique’s studio is a sanctuary of premium quality coloured
leather, dazzling fabrics and carefully curated accents, all brought together by hand to create each and every unique Eekie bag.
In her first public viewing, Dominique will be debuting a range of Eekie bags at The Fête this year – a particularly special occasion to bring her collection to Canterbury, where her love for design, sewing and creating exceptional items started.
