This annual event, held at beautiful Grass Creek Park attracts over 7,000 spectators throughout the three-day festival. The trials are an agricultural sport celebrating our connection to our urban neighbours. Visitors and handlers from all over the globe make Kingston their home for three amazing days of trials competition.
For those spectators less familiar with the sport of trialing, there are many wonderful side attractions to entertain and delight you! You’ll enjoy Kingston Police K-9 demonstrations, the Ultimutts Stunt Dog Show, Canine Bark Camp, Horsemanship Demos, and Rideau River DockDogs. Bring your own canine to the trials, and let them have fun at the canine adventure lure course and in the doggie playzone! The Marketplace will treat you to a host of exhibitors with hand crafted items and commercial vendors who have everything your own pets might need. There is lots to do for both human and K9 spectators!
If you are a repeat visitor to the trials, welcome back. If you have never been before, we welcome you as well; here’s hoping you will become a repeat visitor.
