All Breed Cat Show returns to new location.
The Illini Cat Club announces that their 25th All Breed Cat Show returns to a new location. The Cat Show will be held at the Wyndham Hotel in Urbana due to the National Guard performing drills on that weekend. The show will attract entries from across the U.S. and will take place on Saturday, March 4 and Sunday March 5.
More than 170 cats from around the United States will travel to the Champaign-Urbana area to compete in the show. Internationally-recognized all breed judges from five states will officiate and make presentations of more than 30 different breeds of cats in the 8-ring show. Spectators can expect to see the fluffy Persians, massive Maine Coons, sleek Siamese and the unusually coated Cornish Rex. Local exhibitors are also showing off their entries in the Household Pet competition.
Catsnap and the Champaign County Humane Society will have informational booths. Vendors will have cat-related items for sale.
The doors are open on Saturday from 10:00 am until 4 pm and on Sunday from 9:00 am until 3 pm. The Wyndham Hotel is located at 1001 W. Killarney Street, just off North Lincoln Avenue in Urbana.
