The Auckland Fair is a hugely popular and busy event with lots of people, just like you, that want to support handmade and join in on the action. There may be a queue forming to get into the event before we open and often while the event is on. We appreciate your patience if this is the case and please allow for this when planning your day.
Wait times at the events peak can vary, and during quieter times, just 5-10 minutes. The busiest time is from 10.30am to 1pm, the event is less congested from 3pm to 5pm. However, this can change due to the Auckland Fair’s increasing popularity.
Visitor safety comes first, no exceptions. If the event is very busy, we will often hold further entries until some people have left and will allow more to come in, however, the line is always moving and doesn’t take too long at all.
If there is a bit of a wait or if the inside is congested, we ask that you are patient and understanding.
