Westminster Dog Show 2024

Featured Written by AKC

THE WESTMINSTER KENNEL CLUB ANNOUNCES DATE AND LOCATION FOR THEIR 148TH EVENT New York, NY

The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show presented by Purina Pro Plan, America's second-longest continuously held sporting event, will be held May 11- 14, 2024, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows– Corona Park in Queens, New York City for the second year in a row. This iconic event is the centerpiece of Westminster Week.

“For the 148th consecutive year, the Club is excited to host the premier event in dog sports for all to enjoy,” said Westminster Kennel Club President, Dr. Don Sturz. “During Westminster Week fans have the rare opportunity to meet thousands of canine athletes from around the world and watch these incredible dogs as they compete in five different types of competition.” America’s Dog Show will again attract over 3,000 top-winning dogs for its historic events.

In addition to the 11th Annual Masters Agility Championship, the 2024 schedule includes the 9th Annual Masters Obedience Championship, Dock Diving, Junior Showmanship, 200+ Breed competitions (for Champions only), 7 Group competitions, concluding with Best in Show being crowned on the court in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

“As a former Junior Handler, the 2024 event has special meaning as we will be celebrating the 90th anniversary of the Junior Showmanship competition at Westminster. The tradition of highlighting young dog handlers (ages 9-18) began in 1934. It is woven into the fabric of WKC and will be a key feature of the 148th event,” said Westminster Director of Communications Gail Miller Bisher. The Junior Showmanship preliminary competition will be conducted over two days with the Best Junior Handler being awarded in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

WESTMINSTER. There’s Only One.

Tickets for all Westminster Week events will be on sale in early 2024.
