The Great Kiwi Summer Expo

The Great Kiwi Summer Expo promises to be a non-stop weekend of boats, bikes, BBQ’s and so much more! Packed with everything you need to enjoy a great kiwi summer and a fun family day out.

The Great Kiwi Summer Expo is a brand-new event to be staged on the shores of the Mighty Waikato River at Lake Karapiro on the 16 and 17 October 2021. We are bringing water and outdoor based retailers and other recreational clubs and organisations together to celebrate everything about summer!

When you are ready for a break from all the shopping and entertainment, indulge in a bite to eat from a range of delicious food trucks whilst sitting on the banks of Lake Karapiro and the Waikato River.
