The next Helensville A&P Show is on Saturday, February 28th, 2015

 

 

The Helensville A&P Association runs the annual Helensville A&P Show at the Helensville Showgrounds. Our 2014 Show was the first officially-sanctioned Zero Waste event in Rodney District, and we believe the first Zero Waste A&P Show in New Zealand.

The Association is certified to to provide horse measuring, which it does on several days each year (dates listed at right).

The Helensville Showgrounds are also hired out for a wide range of public and private events and functions.

The Helensville A&P Association's history goes back to the turn of the century - the last century, that is. A small group of Helensville locals decided to hold an agricultural show - the inaugural Helensville A&P Show was held on January 24th, 1900. See our historical photo gallery.

The Association is part of the Northern District of the Royal Agricultural Society of New Zealand.
