2021 Annual Show dates are 29th and 30th October.
Theme – Showcasing Primary Sector Industries in Mid Canterbury.
The Ashburton A & P Association has reluctantly had to adjust the arrangements to its 2021 Annual Show due to continuing Covid restrictions. We will not be running a full Show in 2021.
Our 2021 Show will not have any trade sites, market sites, food sites, bar or entertainment as we are unable to do so and comply with Level 2 Covid rules.
We will be running an exhibitor/competitor only Show for 2021 for certain sections. No members or public (who are not exhibitors or competitors) will be able to attend.
Sections that will be running at our 2021 Show are Equestrian, Showjumping, Sheep, Dog Trials, Wool, Shearing, Alpacas, Highland Dancing (Netherby School Hall, Home Industries). Exhibitors will receive an email with further details, including Covid restrictions, and expectations of exhibitors/competitors. Further details will also be made available here in due course.
Sections cancelled are Pet Lambs, Student Classes, Poultry, Goats, Grain & Seed, Pet Parade. A full refund of entry fees in these classes will be provided.
The committee and board are very disappointed for this to happen two years in a row but they are looking forward to being able to stage a full Show in 2022.
The Association thanks its members, sponsors, exhibitors, and the community for its continued support.
