A fête-full day! Hanmer Springs Fete

Lock 30 October into your diary now. That’s to be sure you don’t miss the Hanmer Springs Fête in the grounds of the historic Queen Mary Hospital.



The inaugural fête in 2019 saw 2000 people come through the gates from all over the country and even from Australia.

One hundred and fifty exhibitors will showcase their amazing products.

Take along your appetite as well as your Christmas shopping list – there are some incredible food vendors this year.

The organisers have worked really hard at creating a beautiful and relaxed atmosphere for the fête with high quality artisan suppliers and excellent entertainment, to ensure you get the most out of the day. Make this more than a day trip though – stay and play for the whole weekend!

You can buy tickets on the website – – or at the gate on the day. Pre-purchasing tickets avoids queuing and you will go in the draw to win an epic Hanmer Springs hamper.
