SHOWS 2020

SPRING HORSE SHOW 2020 / 10-11 Oct

A&P SHOW 2020 / 7-8 Nov


Our 138th year of operating Waimate’s showground is unlike any other.

The enduring fun-filled traditions at our Waimate’s showgrounds and its 138 years of operation have faced challenges before, but none have created as much uncertainty as Covid-19. So to be super clear, planning  and preparation for the 2020 events are in full swing. We open on 10- 11 October with the Southern Canterbury Spring Horse Show followed by the A&P Show on 7 – 8 November. Still it it’s impossible to know what changes this pandemic might force on our events as winter & spring approaches. Directives from the government and Waimate District Council – aimed to safeguard the health and safety of all our visitors/competitors – will inform any potential decisions. After all, our chief concern is your wellbeing.

And if there’s is anything we know for sure, is that Canterburians will be more than ready to have some good old “fun events” when those gates swing open. Until then, please be safe. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events, also known as the “fun Waimo events”.
