On Saturday 27th March, come out into the sunshine and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells on the street at the Mt Eden Village Fete, following from last year’s very popular event.

The heart of Mt Eden village will offer something for young and old alike in its street market packed with delicious food and drink, eclectic music, and plenty of entertainment from 11-3pm. Ngauruhoe Street dressed in Fete-like garb will be closed to traffic, allowing public to flow through on the last weekend before daylight savings begins.

With over 40 businesses getting involved this year, the Village Fete is becoming a regular highlight on the Mt Eden calendar, as shopkeepers set up stalls with specially priced sale goods for the event. Participating food-sellers will also line the street with an array of tastings and samples of fish, wine, sausages, breads and specialities, which were a mark of last year’s event.

A variety of musicians will perform over the afternoon along the shop fronts. Expect to hear an array of exotic sounds from Dixie Jazz, Sea-Shanties, Gospel and vibrant Cook Island dancing and drumming.

Entertainment along the street takes the shape of three decadently dressed rooms which will be created especially for the Village Fete, each with their own vibrant host. These comparatively different zones - the Island Fale, English Drawing Room, and 50’s Tea Room - will become welcoming places where people are invited to take a break from the hubbub and be entertained.
