The Original Gypsy Fair has been travelling NZ and we will be back in Taupo At the Awesome Tongariro Nth Domain, for our fifth fair of the 2017-2018 season.

As always we will be bringing an expansive range of handcrafted products that are sold exclusively at The Original Gypsy Fair, some of which will be made before your eyes.

Watch the world famous performing dogs Ponies.

Brought to you by our very own Jim & Venus Banks.

Watch our world renowned glass blower Geoff Brunker as he skilfully manipulates molten glass into an array of beautiful works of art. Observe the woodcraft skills of master craftsman Phil White who has created beautiful fretwork as well as a selection of toys and other wooden creations.

David and Rowena have a stunning range of handmade fork art, bead craft, jewellery and machine embroidery. Tattooing and body piercing is available by the very talented Jude Sergeant and Sandy will skilfully braid your hair and also has a fine selection of hair accessories, hair extensions, seashells and starfish.

Inhale the divine scents as you walk into Donnas “Wildflower Aromas” where you will feast your eyes on her beautiful range of handmade soaps, balms, oils and soy candles, while you are there take the time to marvel at Tony’s handcrafted walking sticks where a lot of love and time has gone into what is not only a work of art but also a necessity for many.

You won’t want to miss the colourful tie dyed creations at Sean & Lou’s stall, all hand tied and dyed by Sean. You’re bound to fall in love with something at Kristin’s clothes and then flash it up by popping over to Dianne’s spectacular range of hats, bags and other accessories.

You’ll be amazed at Molly’s hand spun yarns & creations and the magpie will come out in you when you spy Bev’s crystals and gemstones. Lyn has a selection of fashion jewellery and silver.

Tarot by World famous Franseska and new this season, Osho Zen Tarot by Phil.

Feeling hungry? Well our master chef Micky has a tempting selection of fairground food including the much sought after Sheryl burgers. Robyn has a selection of cakes and slices as well as great coffee, smoothies and other beverages at her Bouncy Bean Café.

Treat the kids or even yourself at Pam and Shanes Candyfloss, freshly spun before your eyes there’s nothing better than candyfloss at the fair, and their fudge is dangerously addictive.

Entertain the kids and let them run themselves tired on Ross’s unique obstacle bounce, Bobbies Bubbles, Hula Hoops and other juggling supplies will keep the kids fascinated for hours. Get their faces painted, also body art by international artist Jane and partner Aiden.

Let them experience “Ye Olde Play station” toys from yester year. Are you a good shot? Find out at the Sgts mess Shooting Gallery, and test your balancing skills at Dave and Oscars Segway’s and Hover boards.

Soak up the atmosphere of live stage entertainment by Karlos, performing daily on his handcrafted stage. Musos are most welcome to come along for a jam too.

Our wonderful homes that we travel in are part of the largest fleet of privately owned heritage vehicles continuously touring NZ.

The Original Gypsy Fair is all made possible by the hard working and wonderful Jim & Venus Banks
