Welcome to the Temuka & Geraldine A & P Association website. We are proud of our long history of holding A & P Shows at the Winchester Showgrounds, with Saturday 7 March 2020 being our 146th Show. Yes 146 years - not bad, if I say so myself.
We are already in the planning stages for our 146th Show, why don’t you put Saturday 7 March 2020 into your diary now and come along and see what makes this Show such an iconic event in South Canterbury’s Calendar?
We are family friendly with competitions for everyone there are horses and ponies with trophies and ribbons being eagerly contested for. If you take a wander around the pens you will see alpacas, goats, sheep and poultry, whilst the shed section offers something for everyone.
If you are a keen baker, young or old, there are plenty of options you can enter in (there is even a special section for the men). If you knit, sew or crochet, paint or take photos then we have a section for you but wait, there’s more, we have cut flowers, vegetables, grain and seed and wool. Start thinking about what you can enter in next year, we’d love to see your name on our prize list.
We haven’t forgotten the young ones either we have the Pet Parade and Junior Schedule, Lego building competitions, face painting, a balloonist and hunt for prizes in the sawdust and a special draw for two special prizes.
Later in the year we will announce what the 2020 theme will be, this year we had a ‘space’ theme, and we found out that South Canterbury has a lot of very talented youngsters who had some great ideas.
For pure magical entertainment this year we were lucky enough to have the Cam Scott who delighted the crowds with his singing. Then there were the trade stalls, food stalls, sideshows, water walkers, FMX motorbikes, woodchopping, Agri Kids, blade shearing, the ever popular Temuka Pipe Band to name just a few.
So remember on Saturday 7 March 2020 to grab the family and head out to the Winchester Show to see if your entries are winning entries or just to enjoy the spectacle that is the Winchester Show.
See you there.
