The Southern Artisan Christmas Fête is held within the beautiful gardens of The Hideaway 201 - just 5 minutes out of Winton - central to all of Southland and a must-see for garden and shopping enthusiasts. See www.thehideaway201.co.nz
A great atmosphere and a fantastic selection of quality artisan stallholders from all over the South Island make this an outing not to be missed. Shop for gifts and handmade wares that you won't see anywhere else - homewares, Christmas gifts, art & sculpture, garden plants, womens and childrens clothing, jewellery, linen, homewares and outdoor furniture. A perfect start to your Christmas shopping or just to enjoy a day out in the country coupled with hand selected quality gifts, live music, craft-brewed beers, cider and delicious artisan food. Each year new exhibitors are added to the fête so don't miss checking out these fabulous new stallholders!
This year the fete consists of 138 gorgeous exhibitors, including 29 new stallholders consisting of cushions made from UK linen, central otago photography, upcycled homewares, french memo boards, handcrafted soap, recycled rimu chopping boards, handmade traditional rag dolls, stonewashed linen bedding and more! Check out the stallholder page for a full list.......
The Hideaway restaurant will be open on-site in the garden which is open on the day of the fete for lunch or coffee (no bookings sorry).
Live music plays throughout the day so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere. This year we are excited to have local duo D & M entertain from the deck of the house in the food area.
The fête will be held regardless of weather. No dogs, BYO or picnics please.
There will be Eftpos facilities on site but a cheque book and cash is always handy!
