Franklin A & P Show 2021


Plans are well underway for our next show in February 2021. We are currently taking expressions of interest for show sponsorship and trade site enquiries are welcome for the show.

At the A&P show, we aim to celebrate the industries that founded Pukekohe and welcome the community to participate and celebrate while having a fun day out with the family. The A&P show has been running consecutively for 135 years on our showgrounds, and each year we aim to get better.

The show includes competitions showing local talent and some who travel from all around the country to participate. We have equestrian and livestock and are proud to have one of the most extensive home industry sections in New Zealand that showcase the beautiful talents and skill from our local community.

We encourage you to participate and love seeing new competitors and old each year. With competitions, animals, entertainment, trade stalls, food and rides for the kids you will be sure to find something for the whole family to enjoy, bring the kids, the parents and the dog, provided they are on a leash and have a fun day out. 

The Pukekohe show is run by the Franklin A&P society who are the non-profit committee that own and operate the showgrounds year-round. All proceeds from the show go back into maintaining and keeping the grounds in support of the local community.

We look forward to seeing you all for a wonderful show!

There will be a primary food court arena where there will be seating, and you can sit by the stage to listen to some of our performers. There will also be various treats at the southern end of the grounds by the children’s amusement rides. If you want to see what specific vendors will be there, you can visit our Trades and Food Sites page.



We have various stalls at the show, including retail, clubs and businesses. Stroll across the lawn and down the lane where they will be set up. We will list all the trade sites as they are confirmed coming up to the show on the Trade and food sites page and on our facebook page.


Thank You

We want to thank all our wonderful supporters and sponsors, including the competition participants, trade and food stalls, all our judges and the many volunteers who put in their time. Without all the support the show wouldn't be able to take place. Please have a look at our Sponsor's page and support them as they give so much support for the show. Our fantastic main sponsor Counties Power is also providing a rock climbing wall and kids fun activities so be sure to come and check that out. 


For all wishing to be involved entries are open now and applications can be sent in. If you have any questions please get in touch with our show secretary Gina Stephenson, 09 238 8773 or
