2022 ACA Specialty

Specialty Info

Due to renovations at the at the fairgrounds, there will be no indoor grooming. I will arrive early and try to set-up an area near the McCormick building where we show that has electricity available. I will also have a generator, extension cords, and pop-up canopies with me, but if you are able, please bring your own canopy. It is usually shady in this area, but don’t want to take chances.  I will also bring additional grooming tables and dryers.  Let me know if you need something else and I will try to bring it.

Dress for the weekend is hippy casual, Saturday being the main day, with contests!  You are also welcome to wear whatever you usually wear to exhibit.

If you are flying in, Oakland is the nearest airport and you will need to rent a car. It is roughly 24 miles to the hotel. I could not find any shuttle service.

Have fun, looking forward to seeing you all.
