National Agricultural Fieldays

The National Agricultural Fieldays is the largest agricultural event in the Southern Hemisphere, with more than 1,000 exhibitors across 40 hectares, making it Australasia’s definitive agri-business event.

For a few days in June each year, the Mystery Creek site just outside Hamilton turns into a bustling temporary town. Over 100,000 people pour through the gates to check out the products and displays, marvel at the machinery and innovations, be entertained by the likes of the Rural Bachelor of the Year competition, and experience what has made the National Agricultural Fieldays such a successful event.

Fieldays provides farmers with the chance to check out the latest developments in technology and farming practice, and to make purchases if they like what they see. And it’s big business – generating hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of sales each year.

Not just for farmers, the event boasts a mix of lively entertainment, top cuisine, and the latest lifestyle products from spa pools to kitchen wares and everything in between.

Gourmet Delights

One of the most popular sections of the Fieldays is the Kiwi’s Best section; an exclusive area showcasing quality food and beverage from NZ producers using gourmet local and international ingredients, and best of all tasty samples are in abundance. Not to mention live cooking demonstrations by a celebrity chef.

Activities & Events

From the No.8 Wire National Art Awards and the Ag Art Wear to the Rural Bachelor, National Fencing Championships and Tractor Pull, there are also plenty of events on the agenda to keep everyone entertained. Check out the full lineup here.
