The Great American Dog Show After Dark

Unload early so you and your dog can stroll along the lakefront, and then visit one of the many elegant dining establishments within walking distance. Or have your order delivered for a lakeside picnic under the stars!

Here’s a sample of nearby dining:


Friday Evening

Join us onboard the Spirit of Chicago for the Canine Cruise Chicago. Enjoy a festive night admiring the lights of downtown Chicago while partaking of cocktails, buffet-style dinner, silent auction and dancing on the waters of Lake Michigan. Proceeds benefit the AKC Museum of the Dog. For more information and tickets click here.


Saturday Evening

Once Best of Breed is chosen, it’s time to relax, regroup, and prepare for groups in the elegant Aerie Crown Theater. Groups, regular and NOHS BIS, the Chicago Challenge Cup finals, will be formal evening events held on stage in front of dogdom’s most dedicated audience. Every BOB winner and Challenge finalist will receive two passes to attend. Other tickets are available here.
