Alpaca competitions under the auspices of the Alpaca Owners Association (AOA) occur throughout the year across the United States. These include:
The county and state fairs that offer alpaca competitions primarily have the Performance classes for youth. Alpaca shows across the United States that are not part of a fair, are usually organized by affiliates associated with the Alpaca Owners Association (AOA) and use the AOA Show System Handbook for conducting their shows.
