Where can I find more information on things to do in the area?

Will exhibitors get extra admission tickets?
Exhibitors will be provided two (2) exhibitor tickets per entered dog for daytime competition, only on the day the dog is exhibited. These exhibitor tickets will be part of each dog’s MB-F entry packet distributed in late May.

Can spectators get tickets?
Due to NY State COVID regulations impacting the allowable number of attendees at events, Westminster’s 2021 events will, unfortunately, not be open to SPECTATORS or VENDORS.  We will, therefore, not be selling any tickets for this event (this applies as well to our yearly ticket subscribers). If you are a ticket subscriber, you will receive a renewal form for the 2022 show sometime in the fall.

What is the hotel shuttle bus schedule, and where does it run? 
More information is coming soon.

What are the bench sizes? 
The 145th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is an unbenched show. 

Is Exhibitor parking limited?
In an effort to respect and preserve the historic grounds of the Lyndhurst Estate, there will be no RVs allowed on the grounds. However, parking at the show will be limited to (Non-RV) vehicles not to exceed 30 feet (ALL INCLUSIVE) in total length. Exhibitor setups may be left on-site overnight, but vehicles and dogs will need to be removed each evening in compliance with municipal ordinances. RV parking/Exhibitor Accommodations (click here).
