The Artisans Fair Market is one of the longest standing Arts & Crafts markets in Northland.

The fair started in 2004 at the Rose Gardens on Water Street to give local artists and creators somewhere to sell their wares.

With the revitalisation of the town basin, the market was asked to move to Victoria (or John St) Bridge in 2011 when it became the Canopy Bridge, with it’s Australasian Award winning “canopy”. This enabled the area to become a significant community and entertainment space for activities such as the Artisans Fair, with the idea of attracting both locals & visitors alike.

Now the fair is unique to Whangarei, serving as an annual celebration of the area’s quality arts and crafts and a destination to many.
