General Information

This show will proceed under Covid 19 Level 2 restrictions if we are still in Level 2.

Ashburton A&P Show has a well established alpaca section.  It is the largest annual agricultural event held in the Mid Canterbury District and attracts exhibitors from throught the South Island.  It  is held annually, the weekend following  Labour Weekend.  The alpaca section is held on the Saturday. 

This is a full fleece show for both Huacaya and Suri with an Age Group Championship Schedule and Colour Champions. We have Child and Junior Handler Classes and the Homestead Farm Challenge Cup is awarded  to the best turned out handler and exhibitor.

For exhibitors new to the Ashburton show, our entrance is located off Seafield Road.  The alpacas are housed in permanent pens.  There is some float parking under trees adjacent to the pens and overflow parking is conveniently loacated just across Seafield Road. 

It is a family orientated show with lots of entertainment for all the family – so bring your alpacas and  join in a fun day out.
