It goes with out saying that Methven is obsessed with Rugby... but we also competitive croquet which makes us a pretty talented bunch.

Methven hosts a range of state and national sporting events including Harness Racing, Rodeo, Football, Swimming, Tennis, Bowls and the insanely gnarly down hill mountain bike comps.

When winter hits, Methven also comes alive with snow sports competitions for all ages. We even have an event for man (or woman) and his (or her) best friend... no not cats or ferrets, just dogs.


Just in case you're not into seriously cool adventure sports or national sporting events like croquet, Methven is also home to some community fetes and exhibitions.

From speciality craft fairs and large outdoor fetes; to rails jams and big air... Methven has an event to suit the whole family.

Methven also hosts a number of Show & Shine events attracting some of the best presented cars and bikes from around New Zealand. 


Well we are a rural town so it goes without saying that we host the Methven A&P Show each year.

The 2022 Methven A&P Show is Saturday 19th March 2022. Tickets are sold at the gate, school aged children are free, adults $15. If you are wanting to have a stall at the Methven Show please email our Secretary on:
