On Friday, November 19, 2021, we will hold a Concurrent BFCA Parent Club Specialty, Conformation only.
These shows are being held in conjunction with the Renaissance Cluster, at the Alliant Center in Madison, WI.

In addition to the above 2 BFCA Specialty shows, the Houston Bichon Frise Club is working to acquire AKC approval to hold their Specialty on Thursday, November 18, 2021, at the Alliant Center in Madison, WI.
As our Specialty shows will be held in conjunction with the Renaissance Cluster, exhibitors will also have the opportunity to show in the Cluster’s 4 all-breed shows to be held Thursday – Sunday, November 18 – 21, 2021.
At this time spectators are allowed. Per the Weather Channel and the Cluster Chair, the average temperature in November is a daily high of 46 degrees Farenheit, with a rare chance of snowfall.
There are other events in Madison that weekend, so all the hotels will probably sell out early. Therefore, RESERVATIONS SHOULD BE MADE EARLY TO BE SURE TO GET THE GROUP ROOM RATE.
The four hotels listed are located within 0.2 miles from the event, and all allow dogs.
**Please note, it is vital that we keep the properties clean so we are welcome for years to come, and bathing of dogs in the rooms is strictly prohibited… There will be bathing facilities at the show site.**
