We’re delighted to let you know that firm dates have been set for this year’s NZ Agricultural Show in Christchurch.
The 2022 Show will be held from November 9 – 11, and we’re already in full swing.
The Government’s move to extend its insurance scheme giving large-scale events certainty for another year was welcome news. It means that now we can plan with much more confidence.
As you’ll know, the past two years have been extremely difficult, I think they’ve helped us to create innovative solutions and new ways of doing things. We’ll carry those over into this year’s show.
The Board has spent considerable time reviewing The Show and looking at how we can make it even better. And the support of ChristchurchNZ and the Christchurch City Council has been invaluable in what have been challenging times.
This year’s event will have a youth focus aimed at introducing them to the agricultural sector. New to The Show will be extended hours for children to visit the ever-popular farmyard, evening entertainment and an opening extravaganza.
We have a real focus on education and fun for children throughout The Show. Last year children of school age were able to attend for free and we hope that, with our generous sponsors, we will be able to offer the same again. We want every child in Canterbury to have the opportunity to come along.
