A fun family day out with something for everyone for the cost of a movie!

There will be a pet tent and an exhibition of rare breeds of animals. The Barwoods stage, sponsored by Fairlie Early Learners, will feature Josh Grimaldi, Eddie Simon Music and the Jae Bedford School of Entertainment. There are also all of the standard A&P animals and competitions... the Grand Parade is well worth watching and is followed by the Fairlie Four Square lolly scramble. There will also be a large number of stalls, a variety of food and many other activities.

Easter Monday – 1st April 2024 - Mackenzie A&P Showgrounds

The Schedule of Classes is currently being developed and will be available online from our website www.mackenzieshow.co.nz in January 2024 with a ‘Sneak Peek’ out in December.

For Dog Owners

The Mackenzie Show has updated their rules concerning dogs on the grounds… the rule is now NO DOGS unless they are entered in a competition or they are a guide/assistance dog. We realise this will be sad news for many dog owners. Please know that the decision has not been made lightly.
