Schools & Groups

Children under the age of 18 will be able to attend this year’s Show for FREE, thanks to a generous grant from the Kiwi Gaming Foundation!

We have a real focus on education and fun for children throughout The Show, and we want every child in Canterbury to have the opportunity to come along.

Bringing together communities of Christchurch for 159 years, The Show has gone from strength to strength, promoting inclusion, acceptance and diversity. The Show champions all that is great about our region allowing visitors to take part in traditional activities focused on our heritage and culture, along with supporting the great strides we are taking in agricultural and business innovation.

We believe the fundamental message of The Show lends itself well to an inspirational day out for school excursions, not forgetting, of course, the amount of fun on offer too! On Wednesday and Thursday of The Show, schools and groups are invited to attend The New Zealand Agricultural Show at a discounted rate. Please email for more details.

We will also be offering free parking to all vehicles transporting school groups to the site, this being buses, vehicles of parent helpers etc. We can also provide support with Health and Safety protocols.
