Our Shows

The NEW Michigan Spring Cluster

Starting in 2021, the Progressive Dog Club of Wayne County and the Pontiac Kennel Club collaborated to form a cluster of four all-breed shows. The two all-breed clubs will be joined by a number of group, concurrent and specialty shows.

Now we have a year of experience under our belt, the kennel clubs have opted to expand the number and types of events offered this year. Please see the list below to see what’s in store for 2022.

Same Weekend, More Shows! April 29 – May 1, 2022

The cluster will be held at the Saginaw County Fairgrounds in Chesaning, MI. This site is roughly 20 miles southwest of Birch Run near the intersection of M57 and M52. It is accessible from I-75 (Clio Exit) from the East and US 127 (M57 exit) from the West.

All judging will be indoors in heated buildings. The fairgrounds was delighted to host our shows and has responded to suggestions by upgrading the lighting in the largest building. There are limited individual grooming spaces available by reservation only in concrete floored horse stalls. Outdoor washing stations are also available.

The site includes over 20 acres of parking on flat ground, and we will have a food truck on site. There is an adjacent campground with 62 campsites with electric hookups, 40 camping sites without hookups, and a dumping station. This is 40 more campsites than last year, and we will also be bringing in additional bathroom and shower facilities. The site is about a 35 minute drive from the previous Birch Run show site, hotels, and outlet mall. There are also hotels south of the show site in Owosso. A list of hotels will be provided in the premium list.

The alternative campgrounds closest to the fairgrounds are the Pine Ridge campground in Birch Run and Jellystone in Frankemuth.

This is our second year of this cluster and this site, and we’ve added several additional competition types and special attractions.

There is plenty of room to expand at this site, so we are hoping to add more in the future! If you belong to a performance or specialty club that would like to join us, please reach out.
