The dates of the 2021 Flock & Fiber Festival ILR Llama Show and ILR Western Championship are the 25th and 26th of September and we will be in ALBANY, Oregon.

SCHEDULE for 2021 Show - On Saturday we will judge fleece-on fiber classes (shorn fiber is due Friday afternoon) and run the performance classes (double show). Sunday we will have the double halter show.

We had a reasonable turn-out of kids for the youth classes in 2019 but we have space for more! Let you llama friends know about the show and arrange your schedule to be in ALBANY the 25th and 26th of September. We love the energy a barn full of kids brings to the show so start planning now and get out on the obstacles with your llama!

Our llama show is bringing in three judges for the weekend. Gogi Villanueva from Medford will be the fleece judge for fleece-on and shorn fiber classes. We will also have a panel discussion devoted to fleece on Friday afternoon at 4pm.

Maryan and Wally Baker (Rancho Mirage, CA) will judge performance classes on Saturday and halter classes on Sunday.

The ILR Western Championship is back thanks to Debby Gremmels! Thanks for your efforts Debby! A dinner is being organized for Saturday evening - more details will be forthcoming.

These links will give you the 2021 catalog/show packet. Here is the 2021 show packet for download, this is the Word version, and if the paging is messed up in that version, please down load the PDF Version.

Living in interesting times, of course that means COVID.  This statement is from the OFFF Board:

At this point Oregon is under a mask mandate for indoor spaces. OFFF will be complying with Oregon and Expo Center requirements that are in place at the time of the festival. There will be no debate.

If you do not feel that you can comply, with the mandates in place at the time of the festival, you might want to sit this one out. This is not only OFFF’s position, but the Expo Center has protocol that must be followed; you can read the details here: https://www.lcfairexpo.com/covid19.

Although everyone must make their own decisions about getting vaccinated, we would like to encourage you to get vaccinated before attending OFFF. In addition, if you are feeling ill, please do not attend; we want to make sure everyone in attendance stays well.

The OFFF Board appreciates your cooperation as we move through these unusual times.

17 August UPDATE: The OFFF show is now live on ShowManager. I updated things in ShowManager and Susan from the ILR office opened the show so you can now register.

Please note that there are Issues with ShowManager include the following:

First, ShowManager is not handling that halter and performance are double shows and fleece is a single show – the ILR per animal fee charged for halter and performance animals will be wrong.

Second, if you are entering an animal’s bagged fleece and also entering them for a fleece-on evaluation, ShowManager will charge you for two separate fleece classes rather than the “fleece package.”

Third, if you want an animal to compete for the Versatility Award (and they are in a halter class, fleece class, and at least one performance class), look for class #99 – ShowManager labeled it as “Composite” and I can’t change the name.

I’m sorry that I am not able to get ShowManager to roll over and play dead. If you use the Registration Summary Form from the packet, count all your classes carefully and add all the fees, you will have an accurate total. I will have accurate invoices for you when you check in at the show. See you in ALBANY and enjoy the rest of your summer! Hal

  • ILR forms for entering shorn fleeces to be judged. These are required for shorn fleece entries.
  • Information about shorn fleece and coat-on/fleece-on fiber types including the "do's" and "dont's" of fiber preparation for ILR judging.
  • As always, my thanks to Brandy Chastain, the Festival Organizer, and the OFFF Board for their support of our show and the Best of Show Diamond Awards - you all are great to work with and thanks for including the llamas in the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival !
