Need a break from the racing? Why not indulge in a spot of retail therapy!
Our retail precinct will have a fantastic artisanal, fete-style vibe. We’ve worked hard to partner with a fantastic range of local vendors and those from further afield here in New Zealand.
You’ll discover a treasure trove of delightful vintage fashion, old-school food and beverages like the award-winning Robbie’s Pickles and homewares. We'll even be hosting a special display of original, authentic McLaren Racing merchandise (though, sadly for the fans, these items are not for sale!).

We're expecting a big crowd of whānau, party-goers, and motorsport competitors and enthusiasts: so our guests will have a diverse range of interests. We'd love to showcase some talented local vendors to visitors from far and wide.
We are looking for stall holders from Friday 31 March through to Sunday 2 April. (Though if you can only commit to Saturday and Sunday, we're happy to discuss this.)
Our site will be open from 8am through to 5pm each day: so our retail precinct will be open to the public roughly between 10am to 4pm.
We're very open and flexible as far as vendors go: our vibe is very much, "the more the merrier"!
