Welcome to the Kapunda Farm Fair – it’s a family atmosphere with plenty on show

Welcome to Kapunda, home of the friendliest field days and also the oldest commercial metal mine (copper) in Australia – site booking are now open

For visitors that can spend the time, its ideal to take in the great local exhibitors of the Kapunda Farm Fair and also take in the surrounding the general district has to offer as well.

The Kapunda Farm Fair has grown into a friendly family affair. The fact that a very large percentage of exhibitors keep coming back is testimony to the welcome atmosphere. By no means the biggest, but if you ask a regular exhibitor the chances are you will be told it is way up there with the best field days have to offer.

Kapunda Farm Fair has been conscious of the tough economic conditions confronting not only agriculture, but the majority of rural businesses. With this in mind, exhibitor fees and gate prices have remained static for some years, as good management has absorbed the ever rising costs associated with running the event.

From day one in 1999, the Stock Journal has been the major sponsor, not just a good one, but a extremely supportive one, in a proud association.

Exhibitors have an opportunity to advertise in the Stock Journal Official Program (13,000 copies). On receipt of site applications exhibitors will be forwarded terms, condition and costs.

The Kapunda Farm Fair attracts the most prominent farm machinery dealers from near and far to create a great list of buying opportunities with specials for visitors in attendance.

A well patronised section for visitors is where the new cars/utes/four wheel drives are on show, offering an excellent chance for those in the market to compare models. Trailers, solar, water tanks, motor cycles, tools, ATV`s are also on show.

The site venue is both exhibitor and people friendly, easy to navigate, flat and well laid out. Nearby free parking is another well received benefit of the Kapunda Farm Fair.
