Waimarino A&P Show

Raetihi Show Grounds, 26 Parapara Road Raetihi | 18 Feb - 19 Feb 23

Located just off the beaten path, Waimarino A & P Show is worth the adventure to get there. Just bring yourself—we’ll handle the rest.

Home to one of New Zealand’s oldest grandstands and with Mt Ruapehu as a stunning backdrop, the historic town of Raetihi hosts the annual Waimarino Agricultural & Pastoral Show on the third weekend of February each year.

Our vision is to bring our community together, especially this year, to stop working so hard, reconnect with each other and have a laugh, a hug or both, and let our rural community know how much we appreciate all their hard work.


The event features equestrian events, world class wood chopping events and an amazing produce shed. There are also stalls for you to stock up on some home made goodies, games and competition for kids and young farmers, plenty of free stuff to do, pony rides and not to mention the world famous Wild Food Challenge. So come down and join us as we celebrate rural New Zealand!
