Here at the New Zealand Agricultural Show, we champion all that is great about rural life – which may include some activities you are not so familiar with!
With the opportunity to not just watch but to take part in many traditional activities, you can try your hand at gumboot throwing, shearing and much more.
Then take a break and watch the professionals at work with various competitions taking place at the Show over the three days.
The New Zealand Agricultural Show is run by the Canterbury A&P Association.
The Canterbury A&P Association is a membership based organisation, which celebrated 150 years in 2012. The Association's mission is to further the progress of agriculture in Canterbury and New Zealand, through the annual New Zealand Agricultural Show.
