2020 Ellesmere A & P Association Selwyn Spring Show is Cancelled


After much consideration the Ellesmere A & P Association has concluded to cancel the upcoming Selwyn Spring Show & 150th Celebrations in the best interest of the Association and Community, due to the uncertainty of what level we will be in, come Show day.

Our intention is to celebrate our 150th Anniversary on Saturday 16th October 2021.

For those of you who have already entered please get in touch with the secretary to organise a refund of your entry fees.
To our Sponsors and Trade, Craft and Food sites we will be in touch shortly.

Thank you to our Members, Sponsors, Exhibitors, Judges and Stewards for your patience and continued support of the Association. We look forward to putting on a great show in 2021

Any questions please email the secretary at info@ellesmereshow.co.nz

Undoubtedly Selwyn’s best day! Where else can you see everything from chickens to alpacas, horse riding to sheep shearing! Come and savour the good food, wine and craft beer and watch cookery demonstrations and enjoy the many displays on show.

Come and watch the best in show jumping and the wonderful spectacle that is the Grand Parade. Shop ‘til you drop, celebrate agriculture and all our countryside has to offer, meet friends and make new ones, bring the family and you’ll find something for everyone.
