I have the same questions Missy has. I'd love to go if it isn't too expensive.

Tickets through Ticketmaster are three tiered:

$145
$60
$40

Those are one day prices. Does anybody know what the $145 gets you that the $60 and $40 doesn't?



Looks like the Havs will be on Tuesday:

Individual breed judging will take place each day between the hours of 8:00AM and 6PM.

All Hound, Terrier, Non-Sporting and Herding breeds and varieties will be judged on Monday, with Groups judged on Monday evening.

All Sporting, Working, and Toy breeds and varieties will be judged on Tuesday, with Groups judged on Tuesday evening. Best In Show will also be judged on Tuesday evening.

All Junior Showmanship preliminaries will be judged on Monday afternoon, with the finals to be held at 7:30PM on Tuesday evening.

170 Breeds and Varieties will be judged in seven different groups during the day Monday and Tuesday*.

*Competition in each breed and variety may be viewed in streaming video at the Westminster website. This video will be available within two hours of completion of the judging of that breed. (Please note: A high speed connection is necessary for viewing.)

Broadcast Information

The Hound, Terrier, Non-Sporting, and Herding group competition will be televised live Monday on USA Network from 8-9PM ET and continuing on CNBC from 9-11PM ET. The Sporting, Working, Toy, and Best In Show competition will be televised live Tuesday on USA Network from 8-11PM ET.

Breed judging highlight videos are available throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday on the Westminster Web site. These highlights will be available after the show, as well.

To our West Coast viewers: Please note that the West Coast telecast is delayed for your time zone. Since results are posted to our Web site as they occur live, if you want to enjoy the drama of the moment, please avoid the Westminster Web site after 5 p.m. Pacific Time on each evening.

Hi Laurie!

I'll be going!!! Last year, I had such a great time, I wouldn't miss it. I'm definitely up for lunch as well Last Westminster, there was a picture of me randomly in the NY Times watching the Great Dane breed competition, so maybe we can get in a photo this year as well

Oh my goodness, I forgot about your picture from last year Kristin! I am so glad that you are going to take the train up. Yahoo - lunch!

We purchased the $40 tickets last year, which is open seating, but we never ever sat down!! We stood around the ring to watch the show. It was so neat to see all the Havs show. Kristin stayed after lunch and went back to see more of the show, but I had to get home cause a snow storm hit that same day!! I would love to stay longer this time maybe!!

Laurie, great minds do think alike. I came on to the forum tonight with the thought that I have to start a Westminster thread because it's only a month away. Poof! there it was.

The $40 and $60 I think are for general admission ($40/one day and $60 might be for both days). The $145 is probably for reserved seating depending on where your seat is. I saw reserved ringside going for $700 a seat, especially for BOB judging. Like Laurie said, we never sat in our seats. Last year the Havs were shown very early in the a.m. Then we went back to the benching area and got to see the dogs and their handlers/breeders/owners. That was great to do. We walked around to the vendors and got lots of free stuff.

We went to lunch, the to the Hotel Pennsylvania to see the vendors there. It's really a fun day. I'm so glad Havs show on Tues (unless they change it again) because it is my day off so I don't have to make any excuses. Can't wait to see you all there!
