Kumeu Show 2017

Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th March

The Kumeu Agricultural & Horticultural Society (KAHS) was formed in 1921 with a purpose to improve the Kumeu districts horticultural growing and animal breeding activities by having an annual show held on land loaned for the event on the main highway in Kumeu. About 1953 the Society purchased a 17 hectare farm near Kumeu railway station, followed some years later by a neighbouring 17 hectares to form a working farm that in March each year hosts the 2 day Kumeu Show with its agricultural and horticultural displays on park like grounds only 28km from Auckland CBD.

Largely run by volunteers the show grounds host many other activities during the year such as Folk Festivals, Filming Activities, Fireworks displays, Performing dogs and Hot Rod type shows with any surplus funds being reinvested in ground and building improvements.

In recent years, the Kumeu Show has attracted record numbers of trade exhibitors and visitors. We are proud to say that we are the biggest 2 day A&P Show in the Northern District.

Exhibitors benefit greatly at our show. Some of these benefits are:

  • They are able to generate new customers and sales leads
  • Promote and educate customers on their product
  • Brand exposure

Trade in 2017

Each year we ask for exhibitor and show feedback. Drawing on this the Kumeu District A & H Society has made some changes in the layout for the 2017 year. Please see the Site Map for more details on these.
