Hosted by GCGRC

The Greater Cincinnati Golden Retriever Club is honored to host the 2015 GRCA National.  Cincinnati developed the moniker “Queen City” prior to 1820, and immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem, Catawba Wine.

Wilmington, Ohio

Nestled between Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton Ohio, Wilmington, the heart of Clinton County is a traditional small-town farm community. Easy access from three international airports, it is perfectly situated for the GRCA National Specialty.  The heartbeat of the national will be Roberts Centre, holding the CCA, Conformation, Obedience, Rally.  Roberts Arena is the site of our Agility on packed dirt floors.  The field and tracking will be held on local private land in the Wilmington area, planned for convenience for everyone.


A schedule of events is up! Over a week of action-packed events planned in and around Wilmington, Ohio! The schedule is still flexible so check back often to see if things have changed.
