Important Information Concerning the 2021 Events

Plans for the 2021 show are moving forward. The safety and well-being of our exhibitors, judges, spectators, and dogs is our top priority. Due to the pandemic, our planning decisions are being guided by government mandates and public health guidelines. Therefore, the number of spectators (Ticket Sales), non-essential support personnel, and possibly exhibitors may be limited based on these state requirements. Please check back for the latest updates concerning attendee participation on our website and social media channels.


Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and NYC restrictions, our WKC office is partially closed as employees are working remotely.  The best way to reach staff members, until further notice, is via email or by leaving a voicemail.

THE WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB

In 1877, New York was well on its way to becoming the world’s greatest city. This was the year that a group of sporting gentlemen decided that this would be a good time to hold a dog show in Manhattan. It didn’t take long before the Westminster Kennel Club, following the lead of its home town, would be on its way to becoming the world’s greatest dog show. Our mission is "to celebrate the companionship of dogs while promoting responsible dog ownership, health, and breed preservation."
