New Zealand Cup and Show Week
This is the biggest week of the year on the Christchurch events calendar. In early November every year, the glamour event of New Zealand harness racing is held, the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup. The idea is for Cantabrian's to dress up in their glad rags, and spend the afternoon at the race-track, in a party atmosphere, with live music between the races. Those who take fashion seriously can enter the Westfield Riccarton Style Stakes, for cash prizes.
Cup day is followed by three days of the Canterbury A&P Show, that's agricultural and pastoral show, a showcase of the best of the farming community, including equestrian events. There's also fantastic food, and amusement-park style rides. This is a colourful, authentic event, which will give you a real taste of New Zealand.
