1. Where will the event take place?
Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, CA, This iconic race track and event location is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Madre Mountains. Santa Anita Park has been a part of SoCal’s history since it first opened on Christmas Day in 1934.

The “Infield” area is where all the action is at. This is a giant grassy area bigger than a football field. The infield area includes: VIP area, general admission area, all of our Corgi Nationals Vendors and food/beverage booths. The qualifier and quarterfinal races will be held there and they will be set up directly in front of the VIP area. We will then move the two semifinal races and the Final race to the actual horse track directly in front of the grandstands.

2. Are corgis allowed in the grandstands? There are NO corgis allowed in the grandstand area where the semifinals and final races take place. If you bring your corgi and wish to view the semifinals and final races, there is a massive jumbotron in the infield area where the races will be shown live as they happen.

3. Can I bring my corgi to the event, and do I need to get them a ticket? Yes, you may bring your corgi. ONLY corgis will be allowed (or corgi mixes), per Santa Anita’s request.
