Welcome

The Ashburton Show is held on the weekend following Labour Weekend of every year and
is the largest two day annual agricultural event held in the Mid Canterbury District. 

Hosted at the Ashburton Showgrounds on 17.4 hectares of land owned by the Ashburton Agricultural & Pastoral Association since it's founding in 1877. Ashburton A&P Association’s mission statement is to “Promoting excellence in agriculture and goodwill between Town and Country”. 

The show attracts exhibitors from all over the South Island. Each year the President chooses a ‘Show Theme’ and many exhibits/competitions are based around this theme.  

The Show offers strong two day competition for Horses, Dog Trials and one day competition for Sheep/Wool/Pet Lambs, Cattle (Dairy, Beef & Calves), Poultry, Alpacas, Shearing, Goats, Donkeys, Grain & Seeds, Highland Dancing, Tiny Tots and Home Industries for adults and students.  All Events are well supported offering a good standard of competition to competitors.
