Are you an animal lover? Fiber enthusiast? Or just looking for a free, family activity with 300 alpacas? The Wisconsin Alpaca & Fiber Fest is for you! WisAFF is the premiere alpaca halter and fleece show in Wisconsin. WisAFF is the result of the Great Midwest Alpaca Fest and Spring Bling Alpaca show combining to bring you one fantastic show. WisAFF is conveniently located at the Washington County fairgrounds in West Bend, WI just north of Milwaukee. The facilities at the fairgrounds are phenomenal as well, with two climate controlled buildings, the Fair Park Pavilion and the Ziegler Family Expo Center that will allow you and your alpacas to enjoy the event.
Breaking news: the final facility layout and stall assignments have been posted, so you know where to find your favorite alpaca farm! Breeders, be sure to check out our halter show page for the latest news you need to know.
Alpacas are fiber animals, and we also want to celebrate the outstanding qualities of alpaca that fiber artists treasure. WisAFF will feature a huge fiber arts display and crafter’s corner. Don’t know how to knit, spin or crochet? We will offer classes throughout the weekend for ALL skills levels! Check out Classes page for more information!
One fleece/three shows, three different judges
To encourage people to enter fleece shows, the Wisconsin Alpaca & Fiber Fest has joined with the Minnesota Alpaca Expo and Shepherd’s Harvest to save time and money sending your fleeces to one show rather than to three separate shows. All you have to do is register for each individual fleece show and then mail your fleeces to the Minnesota Alpaca Expo. Each show will then send the fleece on to the next show.
Be sure to check the box indicating that fleeces are to be shipped to the next show when you register online for that show. You can pick up your fleeces after the last show or have them mailed back to you along with any ribbons you’ve won. The judges for each fleece show will be informed that the fleeces are being entered into three consecutive shows. Volunteers at each show are encouraged to handle each fleece with extra care.
