The Royal Easter Show is the largest, most exciting live event in Auckland, with a circus, entertainment, rides and characters while also being home to the A&P show. An iconic event in every sense, the Royal Easter Show is all about bringing town and country together in New Zealand's largest family event!
In 1910, the Auckland Showgrounds were established on Greenlane Road with the first show on the new grounds in 1911. This is now known as ASB Showgrounds, which is owned and operated by the Auckland Agricultural Pastoral and Industrial Shows Board.
Since then the Show has gone from strength to strength. Visitor numbers each range range between 82,000 and 150,000+ people as the show remains an exciting event for all the family.
The Here and Now
Today, the ASB Showgrounds is New Zealand's premier exhibition centre, hosting more than 140 shows and exhibitions and more than 1 million visitors each year.
A partnership with ASB Bank and cornerstone funding from Auckland Council have been the driving forces behind the Showgrounds' recent redevelopment, which has transformed our site into a multi-dimensional facility with double the exhibition space and greatly improved functionality and flexibility.
