Alpaca Show Management Services is excited to invite you to attend our Fall Alpaca Spectacular which is the fourth time we will run an AOA Certified 2 show format in the Midwest region, the American Alpaca Showcase & the Illinois Alpaca Show are combining forces at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa October 25-27, 2019.  What's all the hub-bub you ask?  A 2 show, one location format is a win win for all involved, one CVI, one trip off of the farm, one drive to the shows, one hotel room, one set of meals, one set of stalls, one sponsorship - but 2 shows!  All you have to do to get the 2 show experience is pay the animal entry for the second show, that's it.  So for just $40 you get a different judge's opinion, all without the additional time, expense, & travel.  We are especially pumped to be returning to the Iowa State Fairgrounds.  This location will supply us with a facility that is just spectacular in every way!  It is a true livestock facility, with a wide open layout allowing us to put everything under one roof!  Our goal is to make this the greatest show and the absolute place to be in October!!!!

The American Alpaca Showcase & The Illinois Alpaca Show are AOA Certified Halter Shows using the 60/40 judging criteria. They will be facilitated in accordance with the current 2019 AOA show division rules. The show is preparing for it's 6th year in 2019 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds under the direction of Alpaca Show Management Services which is a blending of show coordinator veterans Kevin O'Leary and Scott Young who together have run over 80 Alpaca Shows across the country.

How to register for the 2019 Fall Alpaca Spectacular

The American Alpaca Showcase is the host show so you have to click on the link above for that show and at the very least register for stalls and animal entries on that site.  The AAS site is also where you would sign up for sponsorships, vendor space and/or production classes. 

The Illinois Alpaca Show registration site will only accept animal entries into the IAS.  For just $40 more it is crazy to not sign up for both shows but in case you only want to come to the IAS, don't forget to go to the AAS registration site for your stalling & Sponsorships.

Once you have completed your registrations for both shows you can send all your information (both Exhibitor Disclosures, one set of registration certificates & one check) addressed to Scott Young at 7825 County Highway 67, Hancock, NY  13783.  Don't forget you need to visit both sites to  register for both shows!

This show is going to have super limited entries, just 160 female alpacas and 160 male alpacas, so don't delay.  The Fall Alpaca Spectacular will certainly be a case of you snooze, you lose!

This year's judge for the American Alpaca Showcase is:

Helen Testa - All Alpacas & All Classes

This year's judge for the Illinois Alpaca Show is:

Arturo Pena - All Alpacas & All Classes

Don 't forget to upload your AOA Certificates to the AlpacaReg database and send your AAS Exhibitor's Disclosure Form, IAS Exhibitor's Disclosure Form, & Owner of Record for Show Entry Form (if applicable) to the Show Superintendent.

We look forward to seeing you in Des Moines at the 2019 Fall Alpaca Spectacular!
