Please read through this entire page before starting to complete the online application form. 

Please email us at if you're unable to complete the online form.

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

We feature a wide variety of stalls at the event.  We 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.  Second preference will be given to those that applied first.

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.  We do not provide gazebos.

Allocation of your stall is at the discretion of the organisers - please let us know if you need a certain site or need to located near another stallholder.  While we will try to accommodate any requests, we can't guarantee to meet these requests.

Due to the recent upgrade of the Plaza area off the Main Road, there will not be any stalls in that area.

Stall Size

There is one standard size of stall - 3m x 3m.  This is large enough to fit a standard 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 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.

You are not permitted to give away food

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, including those selling food as a fundraiser.  The organisers reserve the right to require you to cease giving away food.


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 and/or carpet 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 no alternative layout if there is wind or rain.  We advise that you come prepared with shelter from all the possible elements (including sun!).  Shelter for your stall is not our responsibility.  It is recommended that you bring a gazebo and weights as the event will proceed if there is wind and rain, unless it's unsafe for the event to proceed.


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!


Once applications for stalls have closed, we will advise you if you have been accepted into the event.  Payment will be required by 1 September 2019 (early bird rate) or 30 September at the latest.  You will not be allocated a stall space until payment has been received - at that point you'll receive your stall number and information on how to access the event and your set up time.

Early bird payments are due by 1 September.  All remaining payments (at the slightly higher rates) will be required by 30 September.

We will send one reminder after 30 September.  If you fail to pay on this reminder, your space will be offered to someone on our waiting list.
