HELENSVILLE A&P SHOW CANCELLED
We are sad to announce that this year's show has been cancelled.
Following extended rain every usable space on the showgrounds is thoroughly saturated. All parking areas have been inundated, and with no safe access for public and competitor parking, we have been left with no good options for running even a scaled-back show.
With little improvement in the weather forecast, we have made this difficult decision now to allow our exhibitors and competitors time to alter their plans.
This is heartbreaking for the Helensville A&P Association committee, and we understand the disappointment this will cause our community who support the show every year.
Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to putting on a sunny, spectacular show next year.

Helensville locals decided to hold an agricultural show - the inaugural
