The history of Whangarei A & P Society dates back to 1877 when it was originally known as the Whangarei Farmers Club. The intervening years have seen many changes, but the objectives remain the same. Whangarei A & P Society has a proud history of promoting agricultural and pastoral interests and is the largest A & P show north of Auckland. It is the jewel in Northland’s agricultural and entertainment crown, and continues to build on a long and successful reputation of bringing the country to town. Today, it's purpose is: Rural excellence - "Getting it out there" and its vision is to bring communities together to share rural excellence and knowledge.
The Society is a not for profit organisation and is registered as a Charity. It is incorporated under the Agricultural and Pastoral Societies Act. We have a strong membership base and anyone is eligible to become a member.
