  • We’ve ensured that you will have a cash bar available at our Harvest Banquet to compliment the rave reviews about our new food caterer.
  • Speaking of food, the Climate Controlled Concession & Dining Area is run by the same marvelous caterer!
  • And, as always, we still are very affordable with some of the lowest prices in the nation, and we also have the best volunteers of any show in the nation!
  • We appreciate so much those that gave us a great 2020 A-OK Blast-Off Alpaca Show with 13 Color Champions awarded in Halter and both a male & female Judge’s Choice as well. We expect a great show in 2021 with competitive events and wonderful attendance.
