Welcome to Showgrounds Park
Our 40 hectares of country in the city provides a perfect venue for our annual A&P Spring Show in October – the weekend before Labour Weekend – every year. With its range of heritage buildings set amongst 100-year old trees and the Main Arena surrounded by a raised bank providing perfect vising from the car parks reserved for the hundreds of our 1100 members who attend, Gisborne’s Showground Park provides an atmosphere when town meets country unparalleled elsewhere in New Zealand.
Not only does the modern Showgrounds Park Motor Camp provide regular income that enables the Association to present one of “the best Shows in the country”, but located on site is the Farmers Air Showgrounds Park Event Centre – Gisborne’s premier function venue, that with the largest flat floor (1216sq.m.) in Gisborne is not only packed with Home Industries entries and specialised trade exhibits during the Show, but is also host to a wide variety of events and activities throughout the year, as shown in our Event Centre Gallery.
