New show layout in 2019! With visitors in mind we have created a more open layout, which allows you to explore the show at your leisure, coming back to the hub to eat, relax and take in a performance on the Live on the Lawn stage.

The Waikato Show is a unique community event celebrating the amazing diversity that exists in our Mighty Waikato.
