Admission: The admission fee is $5.00 per person, children under 12 are free. The onetime fee is good for re-admission all weekend, simply save your program for proof of payment.

Parking: Free parking is available.

Where to Stay: Visit the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce website for more information on area accommodations.

Pets: Friendly dogs on leash are welcome to watch the trial with their people. However dogs that bark or in other ways cause distractions for the handlers on the field will be asked to leave.

What to bring: The trials are a great way to relax and enjoy a day with the family. Bring chairs or a blanket to sit on. Binoculars can be helpful to see what's going on at the top of the field when the Lift begins. The trials run in all weather, rain or shine. Food concessions will be available.

Note: Not all working dogs like to have their picture taken or to be petted. Please ask the handler before engaging with a working dog.
