This is an off-the-truck show. There will be sufficient pens at ringside for shows in progress, but you must remove your animals from those pens when you are finished with your show to allow others to use them. Any remaining pens will be available on a first come first serve basis with a 3 pen limit per farm. No bedding will be provided. There will be pen managers in the barn to help you find space. We strongly recommend that you bring your own pens so the safety of your animals is guaranteed. Set up of your own pens will be in designated areas. Please follow the signs to the Exhibitor’s Entrance to the Vet Check before unloading animals. Thank you for your cooperation.

*ARBA has requested entries be in a week earlier (August 25) than normal in order to get a head count and ensure that enough pens will be on site. If you have any questions about space/pens please contact Ron or Allison.
