Maine Chickadee Classic
Save the Date!
June 22-25, 2023
The Maine Chickadee Classic is a four-day outdoor all breed AKC conformation show held annually at the Cumberland Fairgrounds. This beautiful setting with an old-fashioned county fair atmosphere consists of 86 fenced acres affording plenty of space for overnight camping and parking. Food and beverages are available for sale on site.
The show starts on Thursday, with two all-breed shows and Junior Showmanship as the Central Maine Kennel Club show. The Lewiston-Auburn Kennel Club show is on Friday, again with two all-breed shows and Junior Showmanship. The Penobscot Valley Kennel Club shows are on Saturday and Sunday with an AKC National Owner-Handled Series each day, Junior Showmanship each day, 4 and Under 6 Months Puppy Competition (Best Puppy in Show) on Saturday and several Specialty Shows and Supported Entries over the weekend. New title rosettes are offered by each club, each day. A handling class for beginners will be offered on Saturday before judging begins.
This is the show that both judges and handlers enjoy coming back to every year. The wonderful grounds and friendly folks make the experience a real pleasure, not to be missed.
