One of New Zealand’s largest agricultural and pastoral events, the Wanaka A&P Show, celebrates its 82th anniversary in 2019. Attracting more than 40,000 people to the picturesque Wanaka Showgrounds each year, the two-day Show includes traditional drawcards such as equestrian and livestock events, as well as contemporary entertainment, live music and a jam-packed programme of family fun.
More than 500 trade stalls are also set feature, along with a Kids’ Play Zone, a dedicated family picnic area and the GJ Gardner Life & Style marquee. The Show will again host the novelty Jack Russell race, as well as old-fashioned sheaf tossing and wood chopping competitions. Where town meets country, the Wanaka Show is the South Island’s premier lifestyle event.
Gates open 8am and close at 5pm and tickets can be purchased at the gate.
