Well, we’ve had a busy old time lately – summer really is an action packed season for Schupepe Tents, and it’s great to see kiwis from all walks of life getting out into the sunshine and enjoying what summer has to offer – and hasn’t summer been a beauty so far! January was festival time, starting off with providing tented cover for 4 New Years Eve festivals – the RNV/BW Camp down in Gisborne, the Prana Fest on Opoutere in the Coromandel, the Highlife Fest in Waiheke, and the Northern Bass Fest in Mangawhai. Then in the middle of January we helped cover the Laneway Festival at Silo Park, where we had 14 of our tents dotted around to provide much needed shade for all the crowds that turned up to enjoy fresh, new international music from as many as 32 bands and artists from NZ and all around the world.
The following weekend we helped provide shade and tented cover when the ASB Auckland Seafood Festival joined in the Auckland 175th birthday celebrations in Auckland. Then there is our regular summer gig at The Tasting Shed. Located just outside the country township of Kumeu-Huapai, only 25 minutes northwest of downtown Auckland, The Tasting Shed overlooks the gentle slopes of beautiful Coopers Creek Vineyard. The dream child of Jo and Ganesh, The Tasting Shed is the perfect location for kiwi summer events; and Schupepe Tents are proud to have one of our tents up as a permanent feature to provide cover for the many weddings and events that are taking place at The Tasting Shed during the summer months ahead; including George FM’s Heineken Sundowners – great beer, great bbq and great tunes every Sunday afternoon from 4-7pm.
Oh, and as for weddings!!! In 2014 we installed our stretch tents for a total of 73 weddings! And so far this year, we have installed our tents as the venue covering for weddings on the Coromandel, in Ramarama, Mangawhai, Ponsonby, Pukekohe, and in Torbay on Auckland’s North Shore. Whew! It’s a good thing we love what we do, and that we have a product that is so exceptional – along with a dedicated team who like nothing better than having their creativity challenged when it comes to conforming and rigging our incredibly flexible and versatile Freeform™ stretch tents and marquees.
