We are excited to announce that the 2018 AOA National Halter Show in Peoria has achieved Level V Status. There will be color championships in nearly every color class. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to reach these levels!

The Walking Fleece competition is going to be spectacular with more than 240 alpacas registered. We have added a second judge and will be having walking fleece in TWO RINGS for BOTH Friday and Saturday. This is exciting to have the walking fleece reach such a large number. Thank you all for your participation.

A huge thank you to all of our sponsors and vendors — especially Nancy Billington and Kim Les from Fun in the Country Alpacas — our presenting sponsor. Visit to see a complete list of sponsors and vendors.
