Schedule (click here)

In 2005 we are presenting a new llama and fiber event, the Llamas of Central Colorado Llama & Fiber Festival. This exciting event will allow llama owners the opportunity to market and share their llamas with the public while demonstrating the llama's versatility. We will have a fun-filled, educational weekend at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castle Rock, Colorado. We plan to offer workshops, demonstrations, vendors, an ALSA Youth Performance Show, an ALSA Fleece Show and a "Walking Fleece" class. Please email us at brenda.vance@splitrockllamas.com if you have any questions or are in need of additional information not found on this web site.

Llamas of Central Colorado is proud to be a sponsor of the ALSA Youth Show which will be held on Saturday, July 2nd in the Pavilion at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. The Youth Show is Hosted by Douglas County Lofty Llamas 4-H. The Judge is Barbara Harris and the Superintendent is Scott McHenry. All questions regarding the Youth Show should be directed to Scott McHenry at (303) 688-6642. The entry form can be found by clicking on the link in the box below.

We will have a specified number of spaces available for other fiber producing animals at this Fiber Festival. Alpacas, sheep, goats and rabbits are wonderful fiber producers and they are welcome at this event. We expect these spaces to fill up quickly, so please contact us as soon as possible to reserve your space. If you are an owner or breeder of one of these animals, please contact us if there are workshops and demonstrations you would like to have included in the Festival. 

We will need volunteers to present demonstrations with their llamas for the public. Some of the demonstrations we plan to offer include: llamas as pack animals, grooming and shearing the llama, cart driving with the llama, llama performance - i.e., executing an obstacle course, spinning, preparing a llama fleece  (skirting, sorting, carding), needle felting, wet felting, etc. If you have additional ideas for demonstrations that you would like to see offered, please contact us.

Most of us never get the opportunity to meet and greet the public when we attend ALSA llama shows. We are all too busy grooming, showing, cleaning stalls, etc., to spend quality time with the public answering their questions and marketing our llamas. The LOCC Llama & Fiber Festival will afford llama owners the perfect opportunity to spend the entire weekend with our llamas, demonstrating their versatility, and marketing this wonderful and unique animal and their fiber. It will give the public a chance to learn about llamas and fiber. Who knows, you might even find the perfect llama that you just can't live without!

As we progress on our plans for this event, we will post additional information to this web page. Vendors will be added to our list as applications are received and approved.
