2021 Westminster Dog Show to be held at Lyndhurst in Tarrytown
The nation's top dogs will be enjoying some extra time outside in the next year right here in Westchester.
That's because the 2021 Westminster Dog Show is moving outdoors to the riverside estate of Lyndhurst in Tarrytown. The dog show is usually a fixture at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan in February, but will come to Westchester on Friday, June 11 through Sunday, June 13.
The change comes as a compliance with pandemic event restrictions. “We are excited to host the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show at Lyndhurst, a unique icon of American culture with its park-like landscape and majestic castle overlooking the Hudson River,” said Westminster Kennel Club President Charlton Reynders III. “The wide-open outdoor space at this extraordinary venue allows us to hold a dog show safely while following current social distancing guidelines and public health regulations.”
The show will be televised by FOX Sports Networks.
