Mark your calendars October 19 – 22nd, 2017
For an exciting weekend in Syracuse NY
New York State Fairgrounds, 581 State Fair Boulevard, Syracuse, NY

Registration is now OPEN

The NEAOBA Board and EAA Board have joined forces
to bring you the opportunity to participate these great shows;

2017 NEAOBA Fall Alpaca Halter Show

2017 Empire Alpaca Extravaganza Halter Show

2017 Showtacular Walking Fleece Show

2017 Showtacular Fleece Show

2017 Showtacular Fiber Arts Competition

2017 Showtacular Photo Contest

The two halter shows will run concurrently, in the same venue, same weekend to continue making alpaca show history. This show format will offer all the same top quality aspects of showing your alpacas with a significant savings to all exhibitors. This is an opportunity to show at TWO shows in one weekend. You will need to register your alpacas individually for each show, on each show registration site. You only need to purchase pens once, (on the Empire Alpaca registration site). You save money on pens, hotels, meals, farm sitters, and travel by having two shows in one. Many exciting sponsorship opportunities will be available to support both shows.

EAA and NEAOBA are looking forward to hosting a Level IV (or better) Halter Show and a Level III (or better) Fleece Show.

**Special for NEAOBA and/or Empire farm members, purchase 3 stalls at $195.00 and get the third stall 1/2 off (one offering per farm). Farm display stalls are $175.00.**
