This year will mark 73 years since the Show’s in­cep­tion, and it will be held at the con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion of Roxburgh Race­course.

From eques­trian events to farm an­i­mals, fresh pro­duce, trade dis­plays, art, com­pe­ti­tions and en­ter­tain­ment; you are spoilt for choice when you choose to me­an­der through the var­i­ous ar­eas of the Show.

Ev­ery­one in the fam­ily is cer­tainly catered for too.

From home­wares for mum, to trade items for dad, and en­ter­tain­ment in the form of Spi­der­web and Bungy Tram­po­line for the kids; the hard­est part will be choos­ing what to do first!

In the pav­il­ion you can ex­pect all the fine pro­duce from around Cen­tral Otago, with plenty of en­tries for veg­eta­bles and farm pro­duce, fruit, pre­serves, bak­ing, home­crafts, pho­tog­ra­phy, flo­ral, needle­work and chil­dren’s classes.

There will also be art on dis­play by lo­cal artists Joanne Flana­gan, Mar­ion Mew­burn, Sheena Lassen, Greg Slui, Re­becca Gilmore and Jim Gilmore.

If you’re look­ing for that new bit of farm gear and ac­ces­sories, you also can’t go past CRT Farm­lands, Cen­tral Cus­tom En­gi­neer­ing, Tyre­land Alexandra and more!

And what about those knick- knacks and home de´cor items you can’t get enough of? Visit South­prints, The Black Cat, Wendy Loudon Signs or Crys­tal Cu­rios among the many oth­ers to get your fill.
