Here we go again!! The 2019 event will feature
2 shows this year; with some expansion to both NAAS, the Expo!
Maybe the biggest news for the 2019 event is we are
re-instituting stall limits and setting them at 10 total stalls
per farm. Since you can now upload your show documents to
the registration system and most people chose that method of
delivery we are now going to accept Venmo as a form of payment
so many people will now be able to register in just minutes and
not have to send us anything in the mail! This year we
will also add novice classes to the Expo, these classes will be
for breeders that have under 20 AOA registered females and have
owned alpacas for under 10 years. So you will have a
choice for each alpaca registered in the Northeast Alpaca Expo
to enter that alpaca in a standard class or a novice class and
just compete against other breeders in your classification or
every breeder in the show. As with the standard halter
classes, the 1st & 2nd place alpacas from the novice
classes will move onto the championship class for that color
group and the champion will be selected from all the alpacas in
the show from that color group. So novice and standard
classes will compete against each other for the championship!
Lastly, we are expanding the Walking Fleece Show by folding it
into the North American Alpaca Show. That means all
breeders may enter alpacas in these classes. We have been
doing WF classes at all of our shows for several years now and
they are absolutely loved by exhibitors for the personal
evaluations they supply to each alpaca for the owners.
Please consider entering these classes as they will essentially
give you a 3rd show to enter for the weekend. This will be
year 19 for NAAS and the 9th year of the Expo and with the
Walking Fleece Show we will have all 3 shows happening under 1 roof in 1 weekend! The shows
will be run by
Alpaca Show Management Services
which is a blending of show coordinator veterans Kevin O'Leary and Scott Young
who together have run over 75 Alpaca Shows across the country.
In 2019 check in day
is Friday, April 5th. So
just like last year NAAS & Expo will run in 2 rings with 2
judges. Nick Harrington-Smith will judge NAAS and Helen
Testa will judge
the Expo. NAAS will start with female alpacas on day 1 and
the Expo will judge all males. On day 2 they will judge
opposite genders. That's it just a normal 2 ring, 2 judge,
2 day show, easy! As for the Walking Fleece classes, they
will be judged by Glen Finbow on Saturday.
How to register for the 2019 Spring Alpaca Spectacular
The North American Alpaca Show
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 NAAS site is where you would sign
up for many of the items for the weekend including:
stalls, walking fleece, sponsorships, vendor space, meals and NAAS animal
The Northeast Alpaca Expo
registration site will only accept animal entries into the NEAE.
For just $40 more it is crazy to not sign up for both shows but
in case you only want to come to the NEAE, don't forget to go to
the NAAS registration site for your stalling & Sponsorships.

The show will be offering some new and exciting seminars, all free of charge. Please
look at the schedule of events and seminar outlines which will be online
soon. Due to space
limitations some seminars will be limited to 30 attendees on a first come, first served basis.
Also at this year's show we will be holding a silent auction
with proceeds benefitting the Nunoa Project and the Camelid
Studies program both headed by Dr. Steve Purdy. Both of
these very noble and worthwhile programs need our support.
If you would like to donate items for the auction, or money to help with the effort you can
Please remember that the weather in early spring can be
unpredictable in New England, so come prepared! Should you have
