About Us


Keri Party Hire was set up by three ladies who saw a need for great-quality party and event hire goods in the Bay of Islands. In 2015 Chris and Jo bought the business and moved to Kerikeri from Auckland with their young family. Recently the business has changed hands again to Alan & Joelene. The business has been rebranded as Kerikeri Marquee & Party Hire. With lots of fresh ideas and new stock we are excited to embark on this exciting venture.

We had been running Special Occasions, an event & wedding planning and styling business in the Bay of Islands since 2014. The opportunity to expand into party hire and DIY events was the perfect compliment to the work we were already doing. We are very excited to offer both Special Occasions & Kerikeri Marquee & Party Hire services to the Northland community. We can now provide the best range of products and services to our clients to help them create wonderful and memorable family celebrations and successful corporate and community events.

Joelene's family owned and operated two restaurants and a successful catering business in Auckland, as a family we have been working in hospitality for 35 years. We love what we do and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to ensure our clients get the best advice and products.

We are owner operators and pride ourselves on being a family run business offering personal service to every client. We live locally in Kerikeri with our eight children, ponies and dogs. We love the community spirit of Northland and the opportunity to be apart of so many special family and community events.

Come in and see us, we look forward to meeting you.
