The Tauranga A&P Lifestyle Show has been running since 1895. The wider Bay of Plenty area has moved away from its ‘rural’ status due to the sub-dividing of farmland around the city and the incredibly rapid development of this area. We are unique in that we hold an Agricultural Show in an area that is no longer particularly ‘rural’. We continue to hold the annual show as we see the importance of maintaining the tradition of ‘bringing the country to the city’ to provide the city dwellers and their children with the chance to experience and participate in the lifestyle and activities associated with rural life.
The show attracts between 6000 – 10,000 people and offers a variety of equestrian, sporting and traditional A&P events, along with trade sites, entertainment. There really is something for everyone!
As a registered charity which is heavily reliant on sponsorship and grants to run the show annually, the Tauranga A&P Association thanks the support of the local business community to be able to continue this tradition.
