AKC All-breed Conformation Shows 
The Harrisburg Kennel Club (HKC) is an American Kennel Club (AKC) licensed member club, approved to hold AKC all-breed conformation shows, along with other events.    

We hold two conformation all-breed dog shows each year in April as part of the FIVE-DAY Blue & Gray Cluster.

Each day will feature an American Kennel Club (AKC) sanctioned all-breed dog show with more than 195 different breeds of dogs competing in conformation competition. Conformation judging is based on the dog’s appearance and how well the judge feels that the dog fits the standard, or description, for its breed.  

The cluster is held at the PA Farm Show Complex,
 Giant Expo Hall, 2300 N. Cameron Street, Harrisburg, PA.
Our HKC shows are held on the Wednesday and Saturday during this cluster.  

In addition to the AKC all-breed conformation competitions offered during this five-day cluster, we also offer:
AKC National Owner-Handled Series
AKC 4-6 Month All-breed Puppy Competitions
FSS Open Shows
AKC Canine Good Citizen & AKC Trick Dog Testing

We will also have a Meet the Breeds Event on Saturday with the Harrisburg KC Show.

A portion of the proceeds from these events are donated to local and national canine-related charities, as well as AKC dog charities.
