Lamafest is unique among llama/alpaca shows in its offering of activities for the llama and alpaca owners as well as the general public. It is the largest llama show in the country other than nationals, and is one of the longest running shows.p>

The M.S.U. Pavilion is a state of the art arena and a wonderful showcase for the regions finest llamas and alpacas. In the show arena there will be halter and showmanship classes plus the ever popular performance classes of obstacle, public relations and pack. In the stalling area we have one of the best vendor groups to be found at any show with items ranging from animal care products to unique gift and art items. You should plan on doing some fun shopping for those llama/alpaca lovers on your gift list. Additionally, there are many farm displays offer information on breeding programs and other offerings of the various fine farms in attendance.

We also recognize the importance of our youth members to the future of our industry, so have planned a variety of activities for them. The scavenger hunt is a popular activity and combines learning with a chance to meet other MLA members. Youth judging is a valuable learning tool for more in depth learning about llamas, and a chance to identify future judges. The costume class is entertaining to all at the show and is ongoing throughout the show.

We are again offering both ALSA and ILR shows. You may enter the second show for only an additional $20 per animal for one class or $25 per animal for multiple classes, so plan on showing on both days. Again this year, we will have separate ALSA and ILR performance shows. ALSA: halter on Sat, performance on Sun, ILR: performance on Sat, halter on Sun.

Please note: The non-member ALSA farm fees have been raised to $60 for animals entered in the ALSA show. (ALSA membership is only $50). Youth non-member fees remain $15.

Costume Contest

NOTE: The Costume Contest is open to youth and adults.

Each person will take a specific time and walk around the pavilion, interacting with the crowd. You can choose your own time based on available time slots when you register. You will be judged on creativeness and how original you and your lama look. One of the goals is to show the public how versatile, manageable, and fun llamas and alpacas can be.
