Hawke's Bay A&P Show

The best on show

The team is focussed on providing an event where the highlighted activities will absolutely be on animals, the competitions, the prestige associated with winning the top agricultural prizes, and displaying the best of the best livestock to the thousands who attend each day.

We know the shearing competitions will be fast and furious and world class equestrians will be present and riding on the Main Arena. Dogs, alpacas, sheep, poultry and home industries will also be represented in force across the Show. The AFFCO Best of the Bay and Export Lamb competitions are back again this year.  

The Hawke’s Bay A&P Show is a fantastic experience for people to watch competitors across a range of sporting and rural disciplines. Some of the country’s best livestock and equestrian competitions take place over the three show days. With thousands of entries received each year, competition is hot for the chance to scoop prestigious ribbons, cups and prizes.
