One of the most significant occasions in Southland’s event calendar, Southern Field Days, is a biennial exhibition that transforms Waimumu into a hub of rural activity.
From humble beginnings in 1982 with 60 exhibitors, the event now attracts over 700 exhibitors across a 57ha site.
Over 40,000 people attend the three-day event to see the agricultural sector’s best and brightest on show.
With a focus on working demonstrations, innovative ideas take the stage to surprise and delight. Live entertainment enthrals and amuses, and despite the thousands of spectators, you’re bound to bump into someone you know.
It's not just all about farming though, with a range of exhibitors featuring recreation and leisure activities, such as hunting supplies and jet boats. There is plenty of tucker and tasty treats to keep everyone feed and watered.
Southern Field Days has something for everyone, whether you’re in it for the business or just to enjoy the show.
The next Southern Field Days is in 2024, mark your calendars now.
