Alpaca Show Management Services and the Illinois Owners and Breeders Association is excited to invite you to attend our Fall Alpaca Spectacular 2020! With the postponement of most of the Spring alpaca shows due to the pandemic, IAOBA approached ASMS to see if we would like to join forces and create one of the most awesome alpaca experiences in recent history as Iowa is a state that is conducive to running an event currently.  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 $40 per show 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!!!! Until we see the number of entries we honestly do not know yet if we will be using a 2 or 4 ring format given this is un-chartered territory during unprecedented times.  But we are 100% committed to making this the most exciting show in history and ASMS 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 2020 AOA show division rules. The Iowa shows are preparing for their 7th year in 2020 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 2020 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 Alpaca Halter Entries on that site.  The AAS site is also where you would sign up for Sponsorships & Vendor spaces. 

The Illinois Alpaca Show registration site will accept Alpaca Halter Entries and Walking Fleece entries.

The Rail Splitter Alpaca Fall Show site will accept Alpaca Halter Entries and all Production Classes.

The Illinois Alpaca and Fiber Fest site will only accept Alpaca Halter Entries

Please understand we would love for you to sign up for all 5 shows but no matter how many shows you choose to sign up for, you must still go to the AAS registration site to sign up for stalling and other assorted items.  Remember to click through all 4 links in order to sign up for all 5 shows.

How do I PAY for the Show(s)

Because of the uncertainty of this time in our lives, we will be accepting registrations as early as 9/3/2020 but October 1, 2020 when we know 100% that we are clear for take off, we will email you an invoice showing the cost for all your entries and including a link that you may pay with a credit card, pay by check or with Zelle.  Expect your invoice as early as the beginning of October!
