  • COVID-19: Added safety and sanitation measures will be in place at the show. The Weld County Goat Extravaganza requests all exhibitors to follow all local/state Directed Health Measures and recommendations by the CDC. At this time, that includes 6’ social distancing, and the use of masks when inside a building. At the request of our judges, exhibitors will be REQUIRED to wear a mask anytime they are in close physical contact with show staff and judges (I.E. tattoo checks & signing sanction papers.) Exhibitors are asked to bring their own masks for these instances, however disposable masks will be available at the show table if needed. Hand Sanitizer will also be provided at the show table, and there are ample restrooms available for hand washing.
