It’s Show Time!

The Banks Peninsula A&P Show at Little River is one of the most popular A&P Shows in Canterbury. Like many local shows, the annual event at the picturesque Awa-iti domain is the highlight of the year for many local farmers, growers and producers.

The Little River A&P Show gives them them the chance to show the very best of what the district has to offer to the rest of the rural community as well as the hundreds that travel to the event from the rest of Canterbury and beyond.
