LAKE HAYES A&P SHOW COMMITTEE SAD TO SAY THE SHOW WON’T GO ON
The Lake Hayes A&P Show Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 Show, scheduled for Saturday 15th January.
Given the challenges associated with operating events over the Summer due to COVID-19, coupled with the uncertain timing of the move to the new traffic-light system, it was decided that proceeding with the event is sadly not possible.
“We know the Queenstown community will be disappointed that the Show is not going ahead, as is the committee, ” said President Pip Norton.
“We had hoped to hold a positive and fun community day for people after another challenging 12 months in the region.”
“There were some exciting events in the pipeline for the Show this year but everyone’s hard work won’t be in vain as we will now plan for an even greater Show when we return in 2023.”
“We’d like to thank all of our supporters – sponsors, funders, members, trade and suppliers for helping us get this far, and we will work hard to make 2023 the best Show ever.”
The Lake Hayes A&P show is coordinated by a volunteer committee and has has been held every year since 1904 with the exception of War years. The 107th Lake Hayes A&P Show will be held on Saturday 14th January 2023.
