New Zealand’s iconic lifestyle show celebrates its 20th Anniversary from 16-18 November at the ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane with some special innovation and entertainment to mark the occasion.

The 20th Anniversary show will showcase the “latest & greatest” in products and services from the Automotive, Marine, Lifestyle and Consumer Electronics industries.  This year’s show has six halls allowing you to see, try and buy the brands you love, and uncover some new favourites.

The Driven Hall is NZ’s premier automotive hall, featuring vehicles and motorcycles you can drive home to those you dream of owning. This year’s Supercars – the 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast and 2018 Ford GT will have all lovers of automobiles in awe! 

We welcome the electric vehicle revolution to the show with the Electric Avenue featuring incredible electric vehicles such as the Hyundai Kona, and a chance to test drive the latest EVs

The Mammoth Action Arena will enthral visitors of all ages with an action-packed extreme sports show over the three days.  World BMX superstar Jed Mildon is going Mammoth this year, performing his spectacular array of tricks from an 8m high ramp, while cars are being dropped from over 70m in the TCNZ Car Drops.

The 20th Anniversary Show will also have some quirky attractions such as the Mirthmobile from cult 1990's movie – Wayne’s World.

A new feature area for the Big Boys Toys 20th Anniversary show is the Jack Daniel’s BBQ Alley. This sees 30 competitive BBQ teams from Australasia battling it out for over $10,000 in prizes.  Teams will compete across 5 categories – Beef, Lamb, Chicken, Pork and Pork Ribs to see who is crowned Grand Champion of the Jack Daniel’s Big Boys Toys Barbecue competition.

A huge Construction Zone will showcase the big machinery from the industry in an interactive format, and includes the Auckland Excavator Operator Champs.

The world of music is back at Big Boys Toys with the Music Zone featuring instruments, audio, musicians and more!
