Friends of the Fair

Would you like to be a Friend of the Fair? Of course you would! Friends get access to exclusive benefits, discounts and offers from not only the Fair, but our sponsors, supporters and generally rad people that want to give you a warm fuzzy feeling of generosity.

Not only will you be getting some super sweet deals that will be constantly added to (this is just the beginning!) but you will be helping support the Auckland Fair to keep going and have more time, energy and resources to help the Makers. After all, the Auckland Fair isn’t just an event, it’s a supportive resource for New Zealand’s creative community!

You don’t even need to be in Auckland to support us and be a Friend of the Fair either, nearly all of these perks can be used out of Auckland. See, we think of everything.

So, what do you get as a Friend of the Fair?

New Friends of the Fair cards have been put on hold for a little while until we get more printed!

Friends cards last for 12 months from the date they are issued and are just $95 each (or 26c a day) for all that value and feel good factor! Plus they make a great pressie for someone near and dear to you. Got questions? Check out the card information page.

Meet the Artists

Two artists have been specially selected to produce work, available exclusively for Friends of the Fair. These beautiful A5 prints will not be available anywhere else, there are just 30 prints of each available, and when you purchase your card, one will be picked for you and tucked safely alongside. Be quick thought, because once they’re gone…. they’re gone! Be sure to check out their artist profiles.
