Mahon's Amusements will be here with all their favourite carnival rides for all ages, you can't go to an A&P Show without having a hotdog, candyfloss and a ride on the carousel!

Our Home Industry section will be on display in the Stadium, this is where you can see the best baking, preserves, flowers, vege's, photo's and woodwork all competing to be the best in the Wairarapa.

And what would an A&P Show be without the Carnival? We are very lucky to have Mahon's Amusements at our show again this year with rides for everyone . Keep an eye on our facebook page and look out for the chance to win a family pass. Carnival is open from Friday night through to Sunday afternoon so plenty of time to try every ride and of course have the compulsory hot-dog and candyfloss!

Highland Cattle Display - This year we are lucky enough to have Woolly Manor Moos coming along with 11 of their amazing Highland Cattle, they specialise in halter schooled highland cattle for the lifestyle market along with giving back up and support to all of their hairy moo clients. There will even be some bottle babies on display! They will be competing on the Saturday morning and on display for the rest of the weekend.

You will find these beauty's in the Cattle Pavilion on the Western side of the grounds.
