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.

The next Helensville A&P Show is on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

The Helensville A&P Association runs the annual Helensville A&P Show at the Helensville Showgrounds. Our 2018 show will once again a Zero Waste event, in association with the Helensville Community Recycling Centre. 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. Helensville A&P Show is also Smokefree.

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

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.
