The 2021 National Show Committee is happy to announce that we are proceeding with plans for the 2021 ADGA National Show to be held July 17-23, 2021 at the Kentucky Expo Center, Louisville, Kentucky.
A comprehensive COVID-19 plan has been developed and approved to insure the safety of our exhibitors, volunteers, judges, youth and staff. The committee will be following all Kentucky Expo Center facility, local, state and national guidelines to the letter as well as CDC guidelines. All rules will be enforced.
Masks will be required for non-vaccinated individuals over the age of two. Anyone who is fully vaccinated at least 2 weeks prior to the show will be temperature checked at vet check and will receive a special wristband. Masks will then be optional and voluntary at all times for those vaccinated.
No spectators allowed. Only the exhibitors and their designated family members/hired workers will be allowed. Exhibitors will not be allowed to bring in additional people beyond what is necessary to care for and show their animals. Necessary is defined as members of the immediate family and/or members showing as a herd unit plus ONE additional person specifically hired to help with the herd per 10 animals entered.
Anyone unwilling to abide by the rules will be directed to leave immediately even if they have not shown. This includes refusal to wear masks correctly. Any herd directed to leave will be subject to further disciplinary action as decided by the National Show Committee and Board of Directors.
If anyone has any specific questions, please contact Deb Macke using the National Show Questions form and we will try to address your concerns.
