Welcoming over 100,000 visitors through the gates, the New Zealand Agricultural Show brings a touch of tradition to the city and celebrates all that is great about rural life.
With a packed schedule of top livestock and equestrian events, live music, Endurocross, fun-filled family entertainment, an indulgent Food & Wine Village and so much more, you really will be spoilt for choice at this spectacular Show.
This year, we welcome a wealth of entertainments, including:
- the soulful sounds of Hollie Smith
- medieval mayhem through the Steel Thorns, live armoured combat
- the interactive Highly Flammable Circus
- three incredible shows from the Court Theatre
- live Endurocross
- Chelsea Marriner and her dog trick show
And much, much more...
The Show is hosted by the Canterbury A&P Association, a charity whose aim is to promote the importance of farming, produce and innovation to New Zealand as a whole. The Association’s annual event is one of New Zealand’s oldest A&P Shows and remains a traditional agricultural Show at heart.
The decision was taken by the association in 2017 to rebrand the Show, to ensure its longevity and continued support to the communities at its core for many more years to come. You can read more about this journey at www.theshow.co.nz.
The New Zealand Agricultural Show offers a memorable mix of competition, culture and entertainment – a celebration of everything great in New Zealand and one not to be missed!
