Can I get tickets at the door? 

Yes, the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center is a large venue that accommodates thousands of people, so tickets will not sell out.  

When is best in show announced? 

Best in show is announced at approximately 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and 4:30 p.m. on Sunday.  

Is there seating provided? 

Yes, there is seating available for the group judging in the stadium show ring, but it is first come, first serve. The expanse of the Expo Center contains 13 breed judging rings and 75+ vendors that people experience through the course of the day.  

Can I bring my service dog?  

Unfortunately, service dogs are not allowed as the only dogs allowed are those either competing or performing.  

Can I get reimbursements if I cannot make it to the show after buying tickets? 

No refunds will be provided as the Kennel Club of Philadelphia is a nonprofit with the mission of educating the public about responsible pet parenting and the wonderfulness of dogs. Because of this educational mission, ticket prices are wonderfully inexpensive at $16 for adults and $7 for children ages 4-11 with ages 3 and under admitted for free.  

Can I bring someone different than what it says on my ticket?  

Yes, everyone who has a ticket will be permitted entry regardless of whether their name matches the name on the ticket.
