For the last 10 years the French Country Fair has been attracting locals and Wellingtonians alike to the racecourse. With a lovely mix of food, coffee, and crafts it’s a great way to spend a sunny weekend in the Wairarapa.
Relax under the canopy of beautiful trees, listen to the jazz band playing on the veranda, or stop in at the indoor cafe where you can have a freshly made croissant baked on site. Meander through the stalls that weave in and out the buildings and under the trees, and spend time looking for forgotten treasures at the big vintage shop.
There’s also plenty to do for the kids, so you can be guaranteed they won’t be bored.
The dates for the 2017 fair are yet to be confirmed, however more information can be found at the French Country Fair website.
