2020 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular

2019 is now in the books and it was a GREAT Event!!  Thank you to all the competitors, exhibitors, teachers, judges, sponsors, superintendents and coordinators and our volunteers and public attendees.  It was a grand showcase with folks from near and far and some stunning animals throughout the barns.  

With that said - IT IS TIME TO BLOCK YOUR CALENDARS FOR Feb 14-16, 2020!!

SAME LOCATION - Will Rogers Memorial Complex in Fort Worth, TEXAS

Cattle Barns 2 & 3 with the adjoining arena

It will be similar timing to 2019 as the Fort Worth Stock Show won't be over until Feb 8.  Therefore, our Friday will be February 14 and things will wrap on Sunday, Feb 16.  Block it now!!  Based on our Board/Member review on Saturday, we will continue to protect the Education day on Friday.  Check-in will run same as in 2019 - start on Thursday at 1pm and continue on Friday until 3pm.  With the success of our Education offering in 2019, we'd like to encourage as many of you as possible to plan on attending Friday and bring lots of prospects!  

The 2019 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular once again reflects a small growth factor over 2018 making us one of the few shows in the nation that continues to progress!.  That more than demonstrates the quality of our event and the focus we all put in to remaining one of the best alpaca events in the country.  No one is saying we will surpass Nationals or MAPACA anytime soon, though we can say that we provide a truly solid jump on the new year for both your competitive and educational objectives. 

2020 will continue and, hopefully grow, the performance competition.  We almost doubled in this area in 2019 and we need everyone to start targeting these young

competitors.  The sooner you start the more likely you'll succeed!

As always we'll be working to add additional vendors and expand on our public relations activities to continue the strong growth we realized in 2019 in this area.  

We are getting the word out early so that everyone will block their calendars

and be sure to tell all their contacts and prospects.


 Look forward to seeing you in Fort Worth in 2020!!
