I apprentice judged under Jude Anderson in Suris at this show. Ohiofest is a major top level show with awesome competition.

I love this show and go whenever I have an animal to take, and even if I don't. It is a large show and I like the new venue too. Plenty of parking and not a large fee for it either. Easy to get to since it is right off I-70, not far from Dayton or Columbus. Food at the showsite is a lot better than that stuff they sell at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. The only thing some folks object to, is that the stalls are horse stalls, so not as open as the ones they had at the Ohio State Fairgrounds. Stalls, however, are less expensive. Hotels, for those who need them, are reasonable and not too far away either. Plenty of restaurants in Springfield as well.

Christiane, do they let you put straw on the stall floor?

They actually supply a bale or two of straw as part of the stall fee. The stall flooring is asphalt, not dirt. The show ring is dirt.

Just spoke with Kaye Sanderson of Diamond Rose Ranch, and she plans to do another AFCNA collection at the Alpacafest, so if anyone has fiber to send, this is a great place to bring it! (She says, bring it Friday or Saturday though, so she can get it back to the ranch before Sunday when her van will be full of alpacas.) It sounds like a great show; wish I could be there too.

Thank you all for the info. Been going to the Michigan alpacafest but not a great fan on the show so we will be going south this time to their alpacafest.

I don't live far from Kaye, so that is good to know. I am definitely going to join this year. Just got my skirting table, so will get to work and have a bunch ready to go at AlpacaFest.
