The Quintessential Royal A&P Show!

Animals of all shapes and sizes, strong livestock competition, wood choppers, fencing, world class shearing – Hawke’s Bay on Show is a true celebration of Hawke’s Bay rural life coming to town!

Hawke’s Bay on Show is just that – a showtime atmosphere showcasing Hawke’s Bay, celebrating the beautiful products our region produces, wine, produce, as well as our people.
