Welcome Competitors to Region 1 GAIGs/VADA Fall Competition!  It's going to be exciting 4 days in Lexington with 7 rings, over 450 competitors on the showgrounds, and special events.   It is VADA's objective to ensure all competitors stay safe at the show, so we ask ALL competitors and spectators to wear a mask when indoors (i.e., show office, coliseum) and maintain social distance.  In advance, thank you!

Due to the size of the show, we will be using most of the available stabling including the outside stalls. Please come prepared for the predicted weather conditions.

Here are some of the special events occurring around the showgrounds:
