Welcome to New Zealand Cup and Show Week
Thursday 9th-Saturday 18th November 2006
High Action, High Energy, High Stakes...
A ‘must do’ on New Zealand's social calendar - head to the heart of the Mainland to celebrate the 2006 New Zealand Cup and Show Week. It's a unique time in Christchurch when racing, fashion, food and local lifestyles converge to create a festival atmosphere that is high action, high energy and high stakes.
The city explodes into action with New Zealand Cup Week, which includes the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Galloping and Trotting Cups. Fashion events like the Canterbury Fashion 2006 Collections & Awards and the ‘Best Dressed ’ at the races demonstrate that haute couture is not just French for high fashion.
The nationally renowned Royal New Zealand Show brings country to town and offers an experience that makes you feel like selling up your eighth of an acre block and heading to where there's not a neighbour in sight.
If your idea of an adventure holiday includes friends, fashion, food, wine, racing and a taste of country living, then the only question left is... can you keep up with the pace?
