Celebrating Rural Waikato for over 100 Years
Join us for the Waikato A&P Show at Claudelands Event Centre – November 1 – 3. It’ll be fun for the whole herd! Experience farm-tastic fun, shop unique treasures, and savour farm-to-fork treats. Don’t miss this historically iconic event!
Choose to be part of the fun by competing in one of our many competitions happening at the Show! Photography, Wearable Arts, Talent Show, Home Industries, and Cow Colouring Competition – you could be the one bringing home the 1st place ribbon!
There are multiple categories to choose from, all of which include a chance to win some prizemoney (and bragging rights.)
The competition for creatives!
For kids aged 4 – 13, the winner gets their design painted on the life-sized cow and displayed at the Show all weekend!
Watch as contestants compete with their animals in hopes to be this year’s Supreme Champion! There are all sorts of animals to see at the Show, including sheep, livestock, alpaca and much more.
Dairy Cow and Sheep competitions will take place over the Friday and Saturday of the A&P Show with the Beef to follow on Sunday.
The animal you wish you could take home! Competitions start Saturday, you’ll be surprised how many different colour breeds there are.
Both Saturday and Sunday will be full of equestrian competitions, including jumping, dress-up and in-hand.
You’ve seen it on TV, now it’s time to see it in person. These dogs are incredible to watch! Competitions will be all day Saturday and Sunday.
The Waikato A&P Show truly appreciates the generous support from our funders, partners, and sponsors. Our Show continues to grow year after year because of their kind contributions.
A huge thank you to all of our supporters involved in the Show.
