220 East Fairground Street

The Marion Ohio Kennel Club, Inc. will be hosting a National Dog Show.  This event is open to the public and anyone interested in dogs.  If you have not been to a dog show, this is very entertaining!

Saturday: 8am-2pm

Sunday: 8am-12pm

All of the dogs and handlers attending the Harding Classic are the same dogs and handlers which you see on nationally televised dog shows.

A benefit of OUR show, is that you can get up close and personal to the show rings, obedience rings, coursing trials, and of course, the dogs.

All events are free of charge, and all day parking is $5.

Concession stands will be open, as well as several vendors selling canine retail products from bumper stickers and leashes, to jewelry fashioned to show off your favorite breed during the event.

This is our 119th American Kennel Club Dog Show featuring dogs, owners, and handlers from all over the United States and Canada.  The dogs will be judged on a variety of criteria in obedience and conformation.  Distinguished judges in the fancy also travel from afar to work the Harding Classic.


Coursing Ability (at the Huber Entrance on the Track) All Day

Obedience (Ever’s Arena) 8am – 2pm

Pee Wee Class (ages 5-9 years old) 11:30am

***Please only dogs who are registered to show are permitted on the grounds during the Harding Classic.**
