2018 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular

February 9-11, 2018

And to think they started their 2017 with Grand Championship at the 2017 TXOLAN Spectacular Event in Fort Worth, TX!!  Congrats to Man in the Moon Alpaca Ranch - and yes, they came all the way from Virginia!!

The 2018 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular will include competition, education, vendors, silent and live auctions open to the public and more.  Once again we will be in the Will Rogers Complex on Lancaster in Fort Worth, TX.  Cattle Barns 2 and 3 with the adjoining arena affords us a large and extensive facility that provides a venue that compares with anything in the nation!  


In 2017 the event had over 300 alpacas, multiple vendors and an extensive array of educational offerings.  In 2017 we had summer in February and the facility discovered that they had ventilation issues.  For 2018, we have already made arrangements for back-up ventilation and port-a-cool type fans.  

 

2018 will add performance competition targeting younger competitors and hopes to add even more vendors.  We are also working on the logistics required to add a walking fleece competition!


We are getting the word out early so that everyone will block their calendars and be sure to tell all their contacts.  Look forward to seeing you there!!
