A member of the American Kennel Club, the Sacramento Kennel Club’s first records date back into the 1920s. In the beginning, it was part of the California State Fair in the ’50s, where it was immediately recognized as one of the premier shows in the country. In the ’60s, Cal Expo was built in Sacramento, and it became their new home every year. In the ’80s, several specialty clubs joined and their growth has compounded year-after-year. Today, they celebrate one four-day annual show every April, and have become known for their outstanding show dogs, the competition, and as a great family-friendly event.
