The popular Puha and Pakeha food truck will dispense modern Maori fusion kai with hangi sandwiches and seafood chowder on the menu.
Special displays, with something for everyone, will complement the wide range of Toyota vehicles on display.
"We've had a lot happen in the last 12 months and our stand this year aims to deliver some interactive fun for our guests," said Andrew Davis, Toyota New Zealand's General Manager of Marketing.
"Emirates Team New Zealand, one of our key brand partnerships, have won the America's Cup and that will be at Fieldays on Friday and Saturday along with some of the crew."
The Wattbikes, which are similar to the ones the team's cyclors used as part of their training regime, will be used in a "start your impossible" challenge relating to Toyota's sponsorship of the Olympic movement. Toyota is supporting the Olympics and Para-Olympics organisations locally and worldwide until 2024.
The FT-1 concept car, the inspiration for the latest Supra sports car which arrives here next year, will be on display so enthusiasts can get an up close preview of what is set to be a new benchmark in performance and design for Toyota.
"The FT-1 has travelled the world, and now it's our turn to showcase our commitment to fun to drive cars with stunning design and performance," said Neeraj Lala, Toyota New Zealand's General Manager of New Vehicle Sales.
"The Supra is going to continue re-igniting the passion for exciting performance cars that was started by the 86 coupe."
Petrol heads will also be able to showcase their skills in a tyre changing competition as part of the Toyota Racing Series display.
A scavenger hunt for kids will focus on the Toyota Kiwi Guardians project which is run in partnership with the Department of Conservation.
Toyota ambassadors Marc Ellis and Matt Watson will also be present along with the largest range of SUVs in the market, the C-HR, RAV 4, Highlander, Fortuner, Prado and Land Cruiser 200.
The latest Hilux models and Land Cruiser 70 which are the backbone of many agricultural operations will also be exhibited.
Toyota's stand is again on the corner of I Road and C Street and Fieldays® is open from 8am to 5pm each day.
