Bus it to The Show 

Ok we get it, sometimes getting a carpark is a nightmare. Your best solution for The Show? Take the bus! Not only will you avoid the hassle of parking, it’s better for the environment too!

Our friends at Metro are running extra busses from the Bus Interchange which will drop you right outside the Showgrounds, departing at regular intervals, and the Orange Line runs to the nearby Halswell Shops. How good!

Become a Show champion!

If you’re a Show veteran but have never entered a competition, make this your year! Watching the competitors battle it out is fun, but why not get involved yourself? Who knows, you may come out on top!

From competitive barbecuing to the famous gumboot toss, enter now and try something a little different this year.

What to do after the Show?

You’ve seen every single attraction possible at the A&P show, but you’re still hungry for more? What’s next?

An Addington adventure! Pop down Lincoln Rd from the Showgrounds to check out this bustling suburb. Stop in at the Addington Coffee Co-op or get fancy at the delectable Town Tonic. Little Merchants is the go-to coffee spot for locals in the know.

The Court Theatre runs regular shows throughout the year, including Scared Scriptless every Friday and Saturday night. Make the most of your day out and explore your city!
