The Golden Plains Llama Association was established as a group to promote llamas and alpacas, provide education about these wonderful animals and provide a fun and fulfilling experience for llama and alpaca owners.  Our members are involved in many llama/alpaca related events. GPLA has three main projects annually. We sponsor the Kansas State Fair Llama Show held the Friday after Labor Day in September. We have an annual conference in McPherson, KS open to all members and the public.  And as of 2014, we help host the Annual Alpaca and Llama Show Association Grand National Show of Champions in Kansas and held the 4th weekend of October.  To enter pages for the below activities, click on the topic in the top right hand corner.
