The popular North Hokianga A&P Show features equestrian pursuits, wood chopping, sheep shearing, along with the sought-after baking and food competitions

Held in February for the first time in three years due to pandemic restrictions, the Far North’s long-running Broadwood A&P Show was lucky to find a sunny window during the volatile summer weather that had been hitting the North Island.

The popular event, held in the remote scenic hamlet of Broadwood, features equestrian pursuits, wood chopping, sheep shearing, along with the sought-after baking and food competitions.

Businesses from the region also were on-hand displaying their products, and while food stands seen at most A&P shows were present on the day, the Broadwood Show is defined by a large hangi prepared by the community, and visitors were encouraged to purchase a ticket quickly before they sold out.

The positioning of the show among established native and exotic fauna must be one of the most idyllic settings for any A&P event in the country and is what gives Broadwood its special charm.
