Waikato A&P Show

 

1-3 November 2019

The Waikato A&P Show has been an iconic event in the Waikato Since 1892. It has a rich history of animal Showing and judging, intertwined with Home Industry food & craft competitions. The Show has grown and evolved over the years, and while showing is at the heart of it, it is an event for the whole family.

Every year we have hundreds of people come to exhibit their animals and thousands of families throughout the North Island visiting the show over the three days.

 

What's on Offer

The A&P Show hosts a range of animal showing and judging, trade, craft and food stalls, and a variety of entertainment ranging from classic woodchopping to traditional Highland and Irish dance groups and modern entertainers. The 2018 Show featured performances from Craig Smith, the creator of the Wonky Donkey book and other popular children’s series.
