146th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Announces New 2022 Event Location And Date

146th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog

The 2022 events will return to the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, NY
after Omicron surge in New York City caused a postponement

New York, NY — The 146th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show presented by Purina Pro Plan is announcing that the postponed January 22-26 events are now scheduled for June 18-22, 2022, at the Lyndhurst Estate in Tarrytown, NY, with 19.5 hours of television coverage scheduled across FOX, FS1, and FS2.
 
In December of 2021, the club postponed the January events, due to the surge of the Omicron variant in New York City. This is the second year in a row the organization has had to adjust the timing of America’s Dog Show due to the pandemic. With the safety and well-being of the participants remaining the driving force, the Westminster Kennel Club’s Board of Governors determined that an outdoor event is again the most responsible plan of action.
 
In 2021, the 145th Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show presented by Purina Pro Plan was held outdoors on the Lyndhurst Estate, a National Trust for Historic Preservation Property, which was the first time the iconic dog show was not held in Manhattan.
 
Westminster Week 2022 will kick off with the Masters Agility Championship on Saturday, June 18, 2022, followed by Junior Showmanship, Breed, Group, and Best in Show judging on June 20 – 22, 2022. The Masters Obedience Championship will be on Monday, June 20, 2022.

  • The Westminster Kennel Club, established in 1877, is America's oldest organization dedicated to the sport of dogs. It hosts the iconic, all-breed Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the second-longest, continuously held sporting event in the U.S., and since 1948, the longest nationally televised live dog show. The annual dog show—a conformation competition for purebred dogs—and the Masters Agility Championship and Masters Obedience Championship—where dogs from all backgrounds are eligible to compete—make Westminster Week with its nearly 3,000 dogs from the U.S. and around the world a pinnacle experience for any dog lover. America’s Dog Show has captivated canine enthusiasts for more than a century with its educational benched format, where the public can engage with more than 200 breeds of dogs in New York City. The Club’s mission, which enhances the lives of all dogs, celebrates the companionship of dogs, promotes responsible dog ownership, and breed preservation. WESTMINSTER.
