Alpaca Show Management Services is excited to invite you to attend our Fall Alpaca Spectacular 2023!  The last 2 years have been such a success that we have decided to offer the same format again with a twist.  This year though Alpaca Breeders of the Rockies will again bring their Fall shows east and work together to create this event.  So this year it will be the American Alpaca Showcase, the Illinois Alpaca Show,  and the ABR Fall Fest all happening in one weekend at one venue in Des Moines. 

What's all the hub-bub you ask?  A 5 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 5 shows!  All you have to do to get the 5 show experience is pay the animal entry for the additional shows, that's it.  So for just $50 per show you get a different judge's opinion, all without the additional time, expense, & travel (See above to view the class options for each show).  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!!!! We will run just 3 halter shows, 1 each day.  This format worked amazing at our Spring mega show, the Eastern Alpaca Jamboree.  This new format with a twist allows us more animals at a much more comfortable pace!  Of course if you do not want to enter all 5 events you do not have to; feel free to sign up for whatever events you feel will fill your weekend perfectly for you. No matter what we are 100% committed to making this the most exciting show in history and ASMS and ABR will be bringing, as always, professionalism and expertise. 

All 5 shows are AOA Certified Halter Shows using the 50/50 judging criteria. They will be facilitated in accordance with the current 2023 AOA show division rules. The Iowa shows are preparing for their 10th year in 2023 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 100 Alpaca Shows across the country.
