Friday 11 September UPDATE - Hawke's Bay A&P Show

The Hawke's Bay A&P Society are working extremely hard to still bring together the very best celebration of all things rural!  Whilst Covid19 has certainly done its best to derail the show we are determined to provide a safe event for competitors.

New Zealand’s current uncertainty around Covid19 Levels has cast doubt on much of the country’s event sector however, due to the restrictions being placed on the Society, we have had to make the hard decision to adapt the Hawke’s Bay A&P Show for the 2020 season.

Based on this the 2020 A&P Show will not be a spectator Show. We will still hold many of the traditional competitions and displays normally hosted at the A&P Show such as equestrian, dog trials, poultry, Dairy Goats, Donkey, Alpaca and Fencing, however, we will not be having the general public coming through the gates as spectators.

Should New Zealand’s Covid19 restrictions move to Level One the A&P Society will consider allowing the public access to the show, albeit on a very limited scale.

We are exploring ways to still bring the fabulous Mahon's Carnival and rides to the showgrounds!

Learning UPDATE

It is with much sadness that the Society has had to adapt the education programme and won't be inviting Primary school students to further their learning at the A&P Show. Fortunately, there is still a wonderful array of fun and educational activities and learning opportunities in the pre-Show programme.  A revised programme will be made available to all schools no later than 18th September.

Teachers please continue to proceed with the pre-show programme from the Post Covid Lockdown update- I will be adding learning opportunities to this programme over the coming days.

The secondary school shearing and DMM will continue as planned.

Growing the knowledge bank of the Agriculture Industry is important to us. The Hawke's Bay A&P Society is committed to engaging with learners of all levels, we do this through a variety of ways and working with key providers.

The Agricultural sector needs people to thrive and grow - the Hawke's Bay A&P Society has an important role to play in fostering a passion for working on the land in our youth and developing career pathways to enable and encourage employment in the Primary Sector.
