The Waimarino A&P show has been running since 1911 and has only been canceled 4 times so the decision to cancel the 2022 show has been a tough one.

Our committee weighed up all the information at hand and took into consideration the uncertainty of running events with the current COVID protection framework (the traffic light system). Our annual A&P show is here to celebrate our community, so we will keep planning for a fabulous show in 2023. We'd like to thank all our volunteers and sponsors who've helped us plan thus far and wish everyone a relaxing holiday season with their families.

Well that was an awesome show. What a level one celebration, the sun was shining, the kids were having fun and.... there was a lolly scramble thanks to Kim Young & Sons! NZR hay bale hunt, a comedian, magician, fire men, axe men, wild food, fried food and candy floss. Here are some of the official photos from our very talented Alex Pearce. Thanks very much everyone, she was a goodie!

It’s show day people!!!! πŸ‘πŸ΄πŸŒΈπŸ€Ή Here are a few top tips to make the most out of your day...

βœ… If you have to get cash out Raetihi Caltex and the 4Square are running low on cash so try get it in Ohakune if you are coming from there.

βœ… Gates open at 9:30am and best to come in via George Street entrance for more parking πŸš—

βœ… Clydesdale Carriage rides start at 10am and it’s a gold coin donation 🐴

βœ… Be sure to check out the agriculture section in front of the grandstand where the gift lambs are, Young Farmer Comp and Pedal Power will be πŸ‘¨β€πŸŒΎ

βœ… Ruapehu Off Broadway is on the main stage so check out the talent we have in store there! 🎀

βœ… World Champion Woodchoppers will be at the show so good chance to see the best in the world doing what they do best πŸͺ“

βœ… Produce shed has some awesome displays for you to enjoy and opens 1pm

There is so much more but this will get you started!!!

βœ… Latest update β€’ 9pm 15/02
The committee have had a thorough discussion this evening around options we have should we have to remain at Alert Level Two after Wednesday. We have decided that it is safest to cancel the show should Level Two be extended as this is as much a community event as it is a competitor event and to do either justice we need to be allowed to operate with more than 100 people.

Fingers and toes crossed this will not be the case and the committee remain positive and are continuing to organise the event as planned until we reassess on Wednesday🀞

Cheers everyone,
Waimarino A & P Show Committee πŸ’š

βœ… UPDATE β€’ as of last night we now find ourselves back in Alert Level Two (except of course Auckland who are in Level Three) to manage a few cases of community transmission of COVID.

Many months ago we had made the call as a committee that were we in Level Two on the date of the show we would cancel the event...BUT because this news come to us five days before the show we are going to assess all possible options to allow the show to go ahead should we remain at Level Two come the weekend.

For now we continue to work on contingency plans in the hope that come Wednesday we don’t need them anymore and are returning to Alert Level One meaning the show can go ahead as planned.

For those entering horse events we have decided to waive any late entry fees should you be worried about having to decide what to do.

Keep safe everyone and don’t forget to sanitise! 🧴
