Temuka & Geraldine Agricultural & Pastoral Society, 02 Mar 2019

This is our 145th Grand Annual Show and we have something for everyone, why not come along and check us out? As a competitor or interested spectator, we have horse events and wool, sheep, goats, poultry, alpacas and the shed sections. These are all keenly contested with cups, ribbons, garlands and rugs to be won. 

The Shed covers everything!  This year's Junior Section has an exciting "Space" theme so get your thinking caps on and see what you can put together for this competition.  In the Home Industry section, we have patchwork, needlework & handwork, crochet and knitting competitions whilst the baking section also has a men-only chocolate cake competition, now that could be a fun thing to enter.  We have jams/preserves, photography and art, cut flowers, fruit, vegetables and grain and seed.

We also have some interesting sideshows, food and trade stalls for you to enjoy so grab the family we'd love to see you at the Winchester Show on Saturday 2 March 2019.
