The 2017 Golden Retriever Club of America National Specialty will be held Sept. 22-30 at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center and nearby venues in Maryland and Delaware. The Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club is hosting the show, with the theme of "Paws 'N Claws" – fitting for an event held on the Eastern Shore, known for Chesapeake Bay seafood and crustaceans.
Golden retrievers will take part in a variety of different competitions during the eight-day event.
The event is expected to bring over 5,000 attendees to the area, resulting in a hotel room night demand in excess of 6,000 and an estimated economic impact of nearly $5.7 million.
