Please plan to arrive one hour early so you can get through security and be in your seats once the show begins. If you arrive later than 30 minutes, you risk missing the beginning of the show.
Interested in pre-show activities? Your ticket also includes access to a pre-show “behind-the-scenes” visit with the preliminary winners beginning at 6pm. This one-of-a-kind opportunity allows you to meet and take pictures with the doggy elite up close and personal before their big moment. Upon arrival, head to the Expo Center inside the Garden. Please arrive early if you wish to participate.
Tips for Getting in The Garden Faster
• Please use Chase Square entrance on 7th Avenue between 31st and 33rd Streets. View a map to locate the available entrance here.
• Leave your bags at home and use the “No Bag Express Lane” (the bigger the bag, the longer the delay)
• Download the MSG app to access the “App Express Lane”, which opens 15 minutes prior to doors to the general public
The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is back for the 143rd year at Madison Square Garden on February 11 & 12! Be a part of this epic two-night event filled with hundreds of dogs from across the country competing in categories such as Best in Group and Best in Show.
Westminster is one of the remaining benched shows, which means that you can visit with handlers, breeders and the dogs on their ‘bench.’ This allows you to speak to breeders and to learn the specific breed you might be interested in. All tickets include access to see the Best of Breed winners on their benches at Madison Square Garden from 6-8:30 PM.
