Northeast Alpaca Expo

(Animal Entries ONLY)

Here we go again!!  The 2022 event will feature 3 shows this year; The North American Alpaca Show, The Northeast Alpaca Expo, and the Walking Fleece Show!  We will again have stall limits - setting them at 10 total stalls per farm.  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 and enhance the exhibitor's overall show experience.  This will be year 20 for NAAS and the 10th year of the Expo and with the Walking Fleece Show we will have all 3 shows happening under 1 roof in 1 weekend! 

In 2022 check in day is Friday, April 1st. So just like past shows NAAS & Expo will run in 2 rings with 2 judges over 2 days. Robin Nasemann will judge NAAS and Arturo Pena 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, David Barbosa will be judging them first thing Saturday morning.

How to register for the 2022 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 entries, etc. 

The Northeast Alpaca Expo registration site will only accept animal entries into the NEAE.  For just $45 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.

How to pay for your registrations

This year we will be accepting credit cards as a form of payment.  If you would like to pay via cc, follow this process;  complete the registration just as you always would, when you are finished click the submit button thus generating a confirmation email that will be sent to both you and the show superintendent.  Upon receiving that email, an invoice including both show's totals will be sent with a link to a secure payment site.  Take note of your total when clicking on that link.  This will bring you to a page where you fill out your payment information and click submit.   All done, notification from the credit card company that you have paid will be sent to us and will be then noted on your account.   Please make sure the amount you are submitting is correct and as always please do so in a timely manner.   Registrations are not final until payment is received.


North American Alpaca Show Judges
Robin Nasemann- All Halter classes

Northeast Alpaca Expo Judges
Arturo Pena- All Halter Classes & Production Classes

This year's North American Alpaca show will be judged on a 50/50 basis and the Northeast Alpaca Expo will be judged on a 50/50 basis.  We are going to have two rings, one for each show. 

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 benefiting 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 visit www.nunoaproject.org

Please remember that the weather in early spring can be unpredictable in New England, so come prepared! Should you have any questions relating to the show, please don't hesitate to get in touch with one of the organizing farms.

Don 't forget to send your AOA Alpaca Registration's, Exhibitor's Disclosure Forms (NAAS, NEAE) & Owner of Record for Show Entry Form (if applicable) to the Show Superintendent.

We look forward to seeing you in Springfield at the 2022 Spring Alpaca Spectacular!
