3 May 2021 National Show

Prepare your alpacas and prepare your fleeces – it’s time once again to find the best of the best!

The AAA is very excited to announce that the 2021 National Show is ON – 19th to 22nd August. Head to Bendigo to take part in the pinnacle event in the alpaca calendar for breeders large and small.

  • Measure your breeding program in the show ring under senior judges Angela Preuss and Shane Carey.
  • Put your fleeces forward for evaluation by Adrienne Clarke.
  • Encourage the younger section of the alpaca community in the Youth Paraders and Young Judges competitions.
  • Sell your products or services at a trade stand.
  • Wander the pavilion and network with your fellow breeders.
  • Enjoy a coffee as you follow the judging on the giant screen (which will be broadcast internationally!).
  • Relax at the casual Saturday dinner in the pavilion (after exploring the wide choice of dining in Bendigo on the prior evenings).
