We are excited to return to Chickasha OK—now with TWO Shows!

  • Our A-OK Alpaca Blast-Off Show will be concurrent with our inaugural A-OK Rose Rock Re-Entry Show!
  • Both are in a new, modern and clean location at the Grady County Fairgrounds & Event Center! Chickasha OK is on IH44 and just 40 minutes southwest of Oklahoma City!
  • We have Brand new Kritter Keeper panels that are a full 10′ x 10′!
  • Our traditional fleece show returns again this year!
  • We have our photo contest again!
  • Some fresh faces in our great judges panel that you have not been seen at our show in a while!
  • Fairfield Inn is our Host Hotel, and is close to the Arena with a reasonable rate.
  • Our Friday evening Meet & Greet is expanded along with a Cash Bar.
  • Harvest Banquet with a Cash Bar.
  • Speaking of food, the Climate Controlled Concession & Dining Area will be open!
  • 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 2021 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 2022 with competitive events and wonderful attendance.

Be a part of it the 2022 A-OK Alpaca Blast-Off Show!!
