Grand Llama & Alpaca Show Set for Father’s Day Weekend in Boulder Junction

            The Grand Llama & Alpaca Show will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14, at the Pima County Fairgrounds in Boulder Junction. Free and open to the general public, the show will start at 9 a.m. each day and continue until about 6 p.m.

            The show includes halter class judging, showmanship, walking fleece classes, obstacle course contests, cart driving competition, public relations and pack trials. Alpacas and llamas will be judged in separate show rings with contests going on at the same time in both rings, and animals from many states will be competing for the championships.

            Learn more about llamas and alpacas from the displays and free handouts, and take one of these curious camelids for a walk if you’d like. Owners will be happy to answer any questions you might have. You will also have the opportunity to watch animals being sheared and see spinners use the fiber to make beautiful yarn.

            Vendors will offer a variety of llama and alpaca fiber products—from raw fleeces and yarn to finished garments and gift items. Register for free door prizes, and you may be lucky enough to take home a special shawl or blanket made of llama or alpaca fiber.

            The Pima County Fairgrounds is located at the intersection of County Highway B and US Highway 19, about four miles east of Boulder Junction. For more information on the Grand Llama & Alpaca Show, e-mail or call 111-222-3333.
