Annual competitions at the show include a New Zealand Kennel Club show, Wood Chopping, Mackenzie Shears (a Shearing Sports NZ competition) and a gift lamb competition (would you like to participate by donating a lamb?).  Other attractions this year include musician Jody Direen and Freestyle Motocross and, of course, the carnival. There will also be Highland Games, NZ Fire Service and Cowboy Challenge demos, The Sparkle Fairy, a great children’s entertainer and, of course, the carnival.  

We also have a wide variety of food available…from the kid’s favourites (hot dogs, chips and snow cones) to food with a more unique flavour (Mexican, Japanese, ‘Wild’ NZ food, Turkish kebabs, etc)…something for everyone.

There are over 400 sites…shopping for everyone…men, women and children!!!

Please consider entering as exhibits are an important part of the Show…with over 1000 classes, I’m pretty sure there is at least one class for everyone!!! Maybe one of these areas will catch your eye: home and farm produce, wine and home brew, cooking, flowers, patchwork, needlework, art, crafts (card making, scrapbooking, jewellery, sculpture, carving, pottery), photography, dog trials, local pet dog (children), highland dancing, piping and solo drumming, alpacas, wearable arts, equestrian (from miniatures to draught), sheep, wool, cattle, goats or poultry (chickens, ducks and pigeons).  Lifestylers… check out the Flock Sheep classes or enter your alpaca, goat, chicken or duck!  Please note, due to restrictions in place in regards to mycoplasma bovis, the cattle section has been cancelled for this year.
