Royal Easter Show 2020 - CANCELLED
Regrettably the Royal Easter Show has been cancelled please see advice below.
The Board and Organisers of the Auckland Agricultural & Pastoral Association and Royal Easter Show regretfully announce the cancellation of the 2020 event amid the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic. The news comes after the Government’s announcement this week, where gatherings of 500 or more were advised to be cancelled.
Starting in 1843, this is only the second time the show has been cancelled in its 177-years.
We share in the disappointment for stake holders and the general public with today’s announcement. There is immense appreciation for the patience from everyone involved as we work through the logistics and issues that come with cancelling an event of this magnitude.
The safety and well-being of New Zealanders, stakeholders and visitors is paramount and today our team wishes to express their heartfelt thanks for the on-going support the Show receives, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
