Why You Should Attend the Belize National Agricultural and Trade Show


Belize is a relatively small country, but the National Agriculture and Trade Show (NATS) is definitely one of the biggest events of the year. Over 40,000 people head to the national capital of Belmopan to enjoy three days of music, food, exhibitions, livestock displays, and much more.

First held in 1970 to commemorate the opening of Belize's new capital, the NATS is designed to showcase the products of Belize's farmers, craftsmen, herders, and manufacturers. Everyone who is anyone in Belize will be at the NATS to show off their goods and mix and mingle with their friends and neighbors.

The NATS has now become one of Belize's most beloved events. Spanning three days, the NATS is a great chance to taste local foods, listen to live music, and enjoy a wide range of fun games. In 2018, the NATS will be held on April 27-29, and this year's theme is "Let's Get Growing."

The NATS is held just outside the city of Belmopan on the Agriculture Showgrounds. Measuring over 60 acres in size, the Agriculture Showgrounds are located on the banks of Roaring Creek. The NATS is traditionally seen as the beginning of summer and is a hugely popular event for Belizeans from all over the country.

The tradeshow is divided into three zones, including one zone that is completely alcohol-free and designed for family-friendly activities. One zone is primarily dedicated to livestock exhibitions, while the third zone is for a beauty pageant, horse-riding demonstrations, dog and pony shows, motocross shows, a rodeo, and even a canoe race.

Throughout the three-day event, there will also be lots of live music and all the barbeque meat you can eat. The NATS is broadcast live on Belizean TV and is a great way to learn more about Belizean food and culture.
