Whangarei Agriculture & Pastoral Society


Welcome to the Whangarei Agricultural & Pastoral (A&P) Society.  We are passionate about our vision of linking urban and rural and supporting the rural sector through promotion, motivation, education and more.
We are a support service, we manage events - including the renowned A&P Show each year - and we also have venues for hire.

The Society encompasses a number of different activities including commercial property management, administration, secretariat services and event management

One of the ways we achieve our Mission is by offering agricultural scholarships to young people wishing to further their education in this field.

Our A&P Show brings people from all over the district and throughout the country to experience a real taste of the 'country coming to town'.  Held at Barge Showgrounds, the Show has a reputation for its innovation, entertainment and mix of country and urban offerings.

The Society owns and hires out Barge Showgrounds Event Centre - a purpose built venue designed to cater for a variety of events of any size.
