Everything rural in one place

Alpacas are just one of the many animals and attractions that will be on display at the Morrinsville A & P show.

The Morrinsville A&P show brings rural life to town for everyone to enjoy.

On March 6 every aspect of country living will be on show at the Morrinsville Recreation Grounds.

Farmers and townies alike will be able to enjoy sheep shearing demonstrations and the popular sheep dog trials, and see the finest alpacas, goats, dairy and beef cattle.

The calf club competition is returning after three years and bouncy castles, a rock climbing wall and petting zoo will keep the kids entertained.

Live music, including the Wai Taiko drummers, highland dancing and a strong man competition will run throughout the day.

Morrinsville A&P society president Bruce McRobbie says the show covers all aspects of what the A&P movement stands for and is a great family day out. 

“Families can come to show and it’s not going to cost them mega bucks to be there.”

The trade section will showcase the latest farm machinery, equipment and tractors.

The Morrinsville show is the largest one day A&P event in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $4 for 12 to 16-year-olds, free for children under 12 and a family pass is $20. Gates open at 8am with free onsite parking available.

Every person through the gate has a chance to win a prize up to the value of $500 donated by New World Morrinsville.
