Current CA Dept of Public Health Mask requirement

"As of December 15, CDPH will require masks to be worn in all indoor public settings irrespective of vaccine status through January 15, 2022, at which point California will make further recommendations as needed in response to the pandemic." 

This requirement does NOT impact the KCPS dog shows 6 - 9 Jan 2022 because it is an OUTDOOR activity and not a MEGA event.  There is no mask, vaccination or testing requirement for the show grounds EXCEPT for the Vendor Bldg which will require a mask for entrance.

The Kennel Club of Palm Springs reserves the right to adjust the protocols pertaining to COVID-19 specific to this event.

HISTORY

Organized in 1978 by Robert and Lois Waters, Margaret and Fred Young and Major and Beatrice Godsol to educate members and the general public about purebred dogs, to conduct purebred dog activities and to promote
sportsman-like competition at these events.

The Kennel Club of Palm Springs is very proud of our annual AKC Licensed All Bred Dog Shows, Obedience and Rally Trials held the first weekend in January at the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio. This prestigious show is considered
the opening event of the dog show year. Our first American Kennel Club licensed show was held
at the Palm Springs Pavilion on January 8, 1984, with 2183 entries. Best in Show was judged by Robert Waters. The Show Chairman was Jim Hohe, and Assistant Show Chair was Lilian Barber. The first back-to-back shows were
held in January 1994.

SINCE THEN....

Kennel Club of Palm Springs Dog Shows are listed among the four largest shows in the country by the AKC and the largest show West of the Mississippi!  Also known as the New Year Classic, it is also one of the top listings on the "bucket list" of most dog show exhibitors! No other show has a more gorgeous show venue with weather to match.  There are now five group shows with more than 35 breed specialties during the four days of shows, resulting in majors, majors, majors! There are also  Obedience and Rally competitions throughout the weekend.  The 40 acre venue includes manicured polo field grounds and extensive areas of tented rings, aisles and grooming areas.  Ample daily and overnight parking is available.  The New Year Classic is the first weekend of January.  Mark your calendars now and plan on joining us each year for the best dog show experience ever!  Looking forward to having your dogs and you join us in the beautiful Sonora desert!
