In case of inclement weather, HKC follows the cancellation schedule for the Central Dauphin School District.

To protect the rights of all dog owners.
In addition to hosting two dog shows and a number of agility trials annually, the Harrisburg Kennel Club and its members work to:

It is with a heavy heart that the Harrisburg Kennel Club, Lebanon County Kennel Club, and Mason & Dixon Kennel Club announce the cancellation of the 2020 Blue & Gray Cluster dog shows in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, April 9-12, 2020.
Recent measures taken by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania restricting large group gatherings and recommending social distancing in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), along with the uncertainty of whether our venue would even become available for our use in April, were some of the factors leading us to the decision to cancel these shows. At this time, the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has cancelled all public events for March at the PA Farm Show Complex & Expo Center.
While this decision was not made lightly, we believe that being proactive in trying to help protect the well-being of all involved in these events is of the utmost importance, and felt this was the best decision for our exhibitors, judges, our clubs, and all involved with our shows.
We are deeply disappointed, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused, but we look forward to April of 2021 when we can all celebrate together again our sport at the Harrisburg PA’s Blue & Gray Cluster.
Thank you for your understanding.
