2021 TXOLAN Continues with Double-Show Action

The Sweetheart Spectacular and The Bluebonnet Stakes

2020 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 12-15, 2020!!


NEW LOCATION - J.S. Bridwell Agricultural Center, Wichita Falls, TEXAS


It will be somewhat similar timing to 2020. Our Friday will be February 12 and things will wrap on Sunday, Feb 14, but we have made arrangements for you to be able to overnight on Sunday the 14th and load-out by noon on the 15th.  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 starting on Thursday at 1pm for all, (especially Walking Fleece animals who must by checked in by 5:30 pm Thursday Feb. 11th) and continue on Friday until 3:30 pm for all others..  With the success of our Education offering in 2020, we'd like to encourage as many of you as possible to plan on attending Friday and bring lots of prospects!

The 2021 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular once again reflected a small growth factor over 2020 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 the larger shows anytime soon, though we can say that we provide a truly solid jump on the new year for both your competitive and educational objectives.  


Currently, we are planning as if Covid Restrictions will be reduced.  However, should we still be under the influence of Covid 19, we will follow prescribed proper safety procedures... such as face mask, social distancing and sanitation.  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 2020 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 Wichita Falls in 2021!!
