The Spring Alpaca Fiesta is now in its eigth year, and is one of the biggest alpaca shows of the year and last year attracted close to 60 UK breeders, from the largest herds in the country to small hobby breeders, with entries reaching 300 alpacas.

The alpaca business in the UK goes from strength to strength with the British Alpaca Society reporting 200 new members joining in the last year, many of whom will be either showing alpacas for the first time at this prestigious event or visiting the show to gain further information and meet some of the most respected and experienced alpaca owners in the country.

The show runs over two days and is being held for the second time at Bury Farm Equestrian Centre, Slapton, Buckinghamshire, following the huge success of last years show. All of the alpacas will be penned in the International Arena, along with the show ring, so everybody can be part of the action and once again we have the ‘alpaca agility’ arena where members of the public can take an alpaca through the agility course, which is great fun and very popular with visitors.

We are very grateful to our ‘Diamond’ headline sponsors Houghton Hall Alpacas, along with ‘Sapphire’ sponsors Snowshill Alpacas, and Kensmyth Alpacas. Also supporting the show with ‘Ruby’ sponsorship are CS Alpacas, Backyard Alpacas, Bozedown Alpacas, Rushmere Alpacas and Merrifield Alpacas.

Last year we had over 500 visitors during the two days, enjoying the opportunity to get “up close and personal” with these amazing and beautiful animals. The show spectacle will be just as impressive this year with a packed house of alpacas and some very intense competition.
