COVID 19 UPDATE
WE ARE OPEN – BOOK YOUR WAIMATE FUNCTION/EVENT NOW
Like many businesses, we are pleased to be able to return to business as usual today (9th June 2020) as New Zealand moves to Alert Level 1. With this decrease in Alert Levels comes a sense of normalcy in business and socialising. You will no longer be required to enforce physical distancing at our Venue, or other preventative measures, however a high standard of hygiene for all visitors is encouraged. Below are a few tips for your next trip to our showgrounds.
While businesses are not required to enforce physical distancing at Alert Level 1, please let your event organizer know if you would like to continue this for the extra protection.

Set at the foot of the Hunters Hills with the legendary white horse towering above the grounds, the Southern Canterbury Agricultural and Pastoral Association was proud to host it’s inaugural A&P Show in 2011 along with a Spring Equestrian Show.
Our association is an amalgamation of the former Timaru and Waimate A&P Associations and so brings to you the combined experience of over 270 years of annual shows.
The A&P show is one of Waimate’s major annual events and the committee looks forward to bringing you more excitement and entertainment on show day. Classes are wide-ranging; from horses, ponies, sheep, alpaca, dog trials, cattle, and dairy goats; to the home industries section catering for arts, crafts, baking and floral for adults and children.
Our Spring Horse Show offers a wide-ranging programme for all levels and is the ideal springboard for the new showing season. It is ideally suited to bringing out young horses, ponies and riders as the atmosphere is very relaxed and there are none of the distractions of the traditional A&P Show.
We extend a warm invitation to all exhibitors as well as the public. All the information you need to plan your exciting family day out is available in this website, and if you have any questions, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
