Belize's National Agriculture and Trade Show 2018

Belize’s National Agriculture and Trade Show

The National Agriculture and Trade Show 2018

Originating in 1970 as a traditional display of livestock and agricultural products, the National Agriculture and Trade Show (NATS) quickly became known as a popular place for partying and rocking out to music. In an effort to return the NATS to its roots, the government has quarantined alcohol consumption and commercial vendors to a small section of the event and now the focus is once again on celebrating the agricultural and farming heritage of Belize.

Why you have to attend the National Agriculture And Trade Show

Visitors normally skip the trip out to Belmopan, the nation’s capital, as it is primarily known for parliamentary proceedings and other government business. But once a year the capital draws tens of thousands of visitors from around the country and beyond to for the National Agriculture and Trade Show, akin to a county fair in America combined with plenty of live entertainment, a canoe race, a beauty pageant and even a motocross show. If you’re in Belize when the NATS is held then Belmopan is definitely the place to be!

Where in Belize is this event held?

The National Agriculture and Trade Show is held in Belmopan, the country’s capital. The enormous event is held at the Agriculture Showgrounds, an area stretching more than 60 acres located on the edge of Roaring Creek right near the entrance to the city.

When this event is held in Belize

The National Agriculture and Trade Show is scheduled for the 27th, 28th, and 29th of April, 2018, under the theme “Let’s Get Growing”.

Note: every year, the event is normally scheduled for either the last week of April or the first week of May.

How to get to the National Agriculture And Trade Show

Domestic flights as well as inter-city bus routes all connect to the capital of Belmopan, located about 50 miles west of Belize City. The trade show is located on the Agricultural Showgrounds at the entrance to the city.

Best way to experience the National Agriculture And Trade Show

If you prefer the old-fashioned attractions of marveling at enormous ears of corn and prize-winning livestock, then Zone 1 is where you want to head first. If you prefer more of a carnival and fair atmosphere, then Zone 2 is where you’ll want to go. Inside Zone 2 is a special Kids’ Zone, with activities and rides suitable for young children.

All of Zone 1 and the Kids’ Zone of Zone 2 are alcohol-free areas. If you want to sip on rum and other adult brews, then head for Zone 2.
