General Information

The Hawkes Bay show takes place each year on Friday (breed) prior to Labour Day Holiday in late October. This year the dates are Breed Friday 20th October. We are thrilled to have Shane Carey from Australia as our judge.  We are running an Age Group Championship schedule whereby each age competes separately to find a champion Male and champion female. Then all champions compete againist each other to find our Supreme Champion Huacaya and Supreme Champion Suri.  Champion of each colour will be decided after the Supreme.  We are continuing to separate of White from Light Fawn to make a stand-alone Light Fawn Colour Championship. When entering your animals remember that if there is a light fawn blush on the top of the head and/or along the top-line, your animal is classed as light fawn. If in doubt please get a colour check done prior to the start of the show.

The after-show event is a casual 'wine and cheese' that will be held ringside so we hope you can stay for a short while after the showing has finished.

We are hoping for a fine warm sunny Hawkes Bay day but whatever the weather you are assured of a warm welcome to the show. If you wish to bring your alpacas and stable them at the grounds the day before the breed show please contact me so I can explain the arrangements.

If you have any other requests or queries please drop me an email

Sponsorship Information

Show season is fast upon us and closing dates are just around the corner. As convenor for the Hawkes Bay show I am writing to encourage you to take part once again in our Alpaca show. This year we will be holding a breed only competition. 

Our A & P committee are extremely generous and support our section by paying to bring in and host our judge, provide ribbons and perpetual trophies for Supreme Suri and Supreme Huacaya hey also offer good hospitality for our stewards and helpers alike.

Each year we need to raise a small amount of money to cover sundry items and we do this by offering sponsorship opportunities.
