The New Zealand Agricultural Show is on track to make a return in November.

Planning is under way for the return of the country’s largest agricultural show from November 10 to 12, after the event was cancelled last year due to Covid-19.

While the main event was cancelled, the Canterbury A&P Association managed to host several events at the showgrounds, in central Christchurch and on-farm last November.

Event director Geoff Bone said that the show had been able to bounce back quickly due to community support, and show supporters had donated $100,000 as part of the ‘‘Save the Show’’ campaign.

More than 80% of the trade sites have already been booked for the three-day show.

The Canterbury A&P Association’s annual meeting will be held on Friday, July 30, when president Chris Herbert will finally step down, after spending an extra year in the role due to Covid-19.
