Held on the first Saturday of December. This is a community event, it is a true small town carnival and Santa parade and widely supported by all those in the Kaiapoi District. It has been forced to reinvent its format over the last few years, since the devastating quakes and the challenges and constraints placed upon it in this modern era.
This is a current member only initiative where members meet every 2nd Wednesday in a structured manner, to get to know other businesses in Kaiapoi, discuss matters relevant to their businesses or the community and also have the opportunity to hear guest speakers in a cost effective friendly environment.
Once a month, the KPA hosts a mix and mingle, which is open to all to attend, it is an evening event and works on an informal basis. This is an opportunity for invited community leaders if the case be, to update gathered attendees on matters that are relevant to Kaiapoi.
