What kind of stalls do we have at Spring into Tawa?

We are looking for a wide variety of stalls for our event.  We will limit the number of stalls selling the same or similar things (for example, there will be limited number of sausage sizzles, face painting stalls etc). 

Where are over-subscribed in a type of stall, first preference will be given to prior stallholders.  Then allocation will be made on a first in first served basis – those that returned their applications first will be allocated the stall.

As with last year, stalls will be broadly organised into zones.  The information you provide in the application form will help us to ensure you’re placed in the right zone at the event.

Food Zone

Children's Zone

Activities and stalls focused on children (for example, face painting, games and activities).


Stall Placement

Stalls will be located on the Main Road.  No stalls are permitted on the foothpaths except those stalls run by business owners located on the Main Road.  We recommend that you bring shelter for your stall if you think you will require it - gazebos are allowed.

At this stage, we are not planning to place any stalls on the plaza area off the Main Road (where the Kereru Sculpture is).  

Stall Size

There are two sizes of stalls:

STANDARD: 2.4m long by 2m wide This is our standard sized stall most suited to community groups and organisations.  This stall size is large enough to fit a standard trestle table (not supplied) with some space between stalls.
LARGE: 3m by 3m This is our larger sized stall and is most suited to craft stalls or those bringing a gazebo.


If you need more space than 3m x 3m, please indicate this on the application form.  Space will be allocated only if available and on a first come first served basis.

Selling Food

Wellington City Council requires all stalls selling food to be registered with the event organiser.  It is very important that you let us know if you are selling food – either to be consumed at the event or to be sold for consumption at a later time.  Failure to disclose this will mean you will not be permitted to sell these food items on the day.

Giving Food Away

You will not be permitted to give food away at the event (except samples).  This is so not to impact on those selling food at the event.


We are unable to provide power to stall sites (except food stalls).  Generators are permitted only if they are silent.  If you arrange power to be supplied by a local business, you are responsible for ensuring that all cords are appropriately covered.  Plastic cord covers will be required to cover cords - tape is not acceptable.  The organisers reserve the right to ask you to move or unplug cords if we feel there is a Health and Safety issue.

Wet Weather Plan

Spring into Tawa is an open air event.  There is not alternative layout if there is wind or rain.  We advise that you come prepared with shelter from all the possible elements (including sun!).  We will only cancel the event if it is unsafe to proceed (e.g. flooding, high winds).


There will be a range of advertising about this event - including radio, a billboard in Wellington City, posters and signage from Whitby to Karori and targeted social media advertising.  You can help us out by spreading the word about the event to get a great crowd along!


Payment for your stall will be required once we have confirmed your place at the event and before the event takes place.  When we confirm your stall at the event, we will provide payment details.  Payment via internet banking is preferred although we can accept cheques.  We can not accept cash.  Payment will be required by early October to secure your stall space.
