Event Description

Alpaca Ontario Celebrates Their 10th Anniversary Spring Show

April 9th 8:30am - 4:00pm,    April 10th 8:30am - 3:00pm


Come on out to the Orangeville Fairgrounds and help Alpaca Ontario celebrate their 10th

Anniversary Spring Show.

 

Last year saw almost 400 alpacas parade through the ring to be judged over a 2 day show

event that was not to be missed. Breeders came from as far as Prince Edward Island and

British Columbia to take part in the largest alpaca halter show in Canada.

 

Take a stroll through the alpaca barns, view all the animals and have a chat with some

breeders. Learn all there is to know about this wonderful livestock opportunity. Take in

the vendor area for a look at just what can be made with the beautiful fleece from these

gentle animals. The photo contest is always a popular display, showing our favourite animals in their best, and sometimes most humorous, light.

 

There is a lot to see and learn in the Fibre Fantasy Area. Sit a while and watch the

spinning and weaving demonstration and get a sense of what this re-popularized art form

is all about. Peruse the fibre display and see what happens after the fleece is shorn in the

spring time. Many breeders are quite crafty and enter their creations in our Fibre Arts

Competition to be judged. You can take part by filling out a People’s Choice Ballot and

selecting your favourite pieces.

 

Short seminars will be offered throughout the weekend on fibre and alpacas in general.

Breakfast and Lunch will be available in the vendor area. And of course, we welcome

you to sit back and enjoy the show.

Admission is free. Plenty of free parking available

We Hope We’ll See You There!
