The Red Rose Classic is fun for the entire  family.


The Red Rose Classic is a premier Dog Show held at one of the finest indoor-outdoor facilities in the east. LKC has conducted AKC sanctioned shows each year since 1946.


The site of our show is the Lebanon Valley Exposition Center in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Located on 85 acres, the show site is just five miles from the Pennsylvania Turnpike and about 20 miles from Harrisburg International Airport. There are over five acres of hard surface parking for large vehicles and trucks.


Located in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch (Amish) Country, the Lebanon Valley Exposition Center is within three miles of three shopping malls and a short distance from hotels and motels. Food for the show is provided by the Exposition Center Ladies Auxiliary (tastes as good as home cooking - maybe better!)


The Red Rose Classic is a must-attend for the whole family and there's something for everyone.  Don't miss this exciting event!
