A District Facility with Loads of Potential

The Northern A & P Association owns the showgrounds in the north-east of Rangiora.  Since 1866, Shows have been held here, only interrupted by World Wars.

The Association is looking at ways their land can be better utilised and to this end have developed a strategic plan to increase the variety of activities able to take place there.

The showgrounds are well known, of course, not only for the Shows but also as a rugby ground and the location of events such as traction engine rallies and the annual muscle-car show.

The showgrounds are a great asset for the Waimakariri District with a huge potential to generate visitors and to provide a focus for the community.
