Dannevirke & Districts A & P Show
I would like to extend a warm invitation to this year’s 111th Dannevirke & Districts A & P Show. This current committee has worked very hard to provide the people of Dannevirke and the surrounding Districts a show that is relevant, interesting, exciting and a great place to catch up with old friends & relations.
We will have all the usual attractions such as, the ever popular terrier racing, shearing, live music, trade sites, home industries which includes baking, preserving, vegetables, knitting, sewing and crafts, along with the children’s entries.
Friday night will see the ever popular Aotea Sports Club Speed Shear take place in the A & P Show Woolshed. There is great prizemoney up for grabs; $500 for the winner of the Open class. Entry into the Showgrounds is by a gold coin donation.
Also in the Home Industries they have the decorated court section which is now open to individuals as well as organisations with the theme being “A Country”, photography, and sheep & beef – plus a host of new things to come and see like 1NZIR Infantry Dogs and Face Painting, to name just a few. We are also hoping the Army will put on another great display along with the Tararua District Council and Horizons and the Civil Defence Team. We also have our ever popular petting zoo.
Our Horse events will start on the Friday 5th February and carry on through Sunday 7th February. The Show will be open to the public on the Friday and Saturday with Saturday being the main peoples day. The trade section will of course be setting up on the Friday and Mahons will be open on Friday night along with the popular Speed Shears.
Once again the trade sites will be in hot demand, with best in both trade & craft sites up for grabs.
Follow us on Facebook “Dannevirke Showgrounds” for regular updates.
Our show can only be a success with people like you attending so make sure the 5th - 7th February 2021 is in your diary to come and enjoy the fun of the fair!
