Mt Eden Normal School
11am - 3pm, Sunday 17 March, 2024
Oct, 2023 update
During a discussion at the Term 4 PTA meeting, where we reviewed the volunteer sign ups - we have concluded that we have not been able to fill enough of the critical roles to run the Food and Fun Fair in 2024.
The PTA will review the events that have been successful in 2023 (a year with no fair) and determine what kind of fair or festival event could be run in the future.
If you had signed up to help - thank you for your help, we will be in touch with how you can help when a feasible event is determined.

The fair is so widely talked about in the community - and that’s because of the volunteers and coordinators that help pull off such an awesome day. Not only does the event raise valuable funds that contribute towards school resources, but it’s such a great social fun day for the kids, parents and community of our Mt Eden neighbourhood. The 2021 and 2022 event secured a large contribution to the funding of our new outdoor canopy over the top courts.
The MENPS Food and Fun Fair 2024 date has been set for Sunday 17th March and preparations are now underway amongst the core team - please get in touch sign up as a coordinator for stall or email us with any questions at all firstname.lastname@example.org
