The Schedule is out which means the Waihi A & P Show is on the way.

There may still be an opportunity to have a stall if you’d like one. Contact Marilyn asap by emailing marilyn@ktd.co.nz or phone 07 863 8243.

Mycoplasma bovis has caused major problems for A & P Shows around the country with dairy cattle and calf clubs unable to bring their stock to the show. Pet lambs and kid goats are more than welcome and this year preschoolers are welcome to enter their lambs and kid goats too.

A period dress side saddle category has been included this year along with many other equestrian events and a Grand Parade is happening this year too.

The Waihi A & P Show offers a great opportunity for families to interact with animals up close and to watch horses and riders navigating courses.

Pony and donkey rides, a roaming magician, petting zoo, hobby horses, gumboot throwing and other activities offer activities for the family to interact with.

The Grand Parade happens at 1.30 pm and the Lucky Gate Draw is happening at 2.30 pm. You must be on the grounds to claim your prize if you win.

There will be plenty to eat and drink at the Waihi A & P Show so families can take along what they need to be comfortable on the grounds and make a day of it.
