    Challenge of Champions Entry Open

    Hospitality Reservations Open

    Order KerryFest Commemorative T-Shirts

    The Event Section of the website is now open for the Challenge of Champions entry and Hospitality reservations.  The USKBTC Store has  the new T-Shirt available for order...just select KerryFest merchandise. More details on the Challenge will be forthcoming but it will be on Friday evening in the Heritage Room as in the past. 

    Since we will be outside, we have added a boxed lunch option to the Hospitality.  You can still just purchase the two evening events but for an extra $10 you can add the boxed lunch.  The boxed lunch is only available with the two evening events.  For those at KerryFest in 2021 it was a good lunch and will keep you from having to go to the show building during the lunch break.

    You can now order commemorative T-Shirts in the USKBTC store....orders close on April 10th.

    This year the United States Kerry Blue Terrier Club, partnering with the American Eskimo Dog Club of America, will offer an Agility Trial on Wednesday, May 4. This will be an all-breed Agility Trial but Kerry Blue Terriers and American Eskimo Dogs will be given priority for entries received March 9 through March 23.

    We know that Wednesday is not adjacent to our conformation events which start on Friday, but our partners events start on Thursday and thus the Wednesday date. The event with beheld at the Equestrian Center which is relatively close to Purina Farms.

    A couple of things to will be notified if you are outbid by the site.  There are ads on the site...just scroll of "X"...this allows us to maximize the donation to the Charitable Funds.

    How to Bid in the Online


    Welcome to the US Kerry Blue Terrier Charitable Funds Online Silent Auction! We hope you enjoy this new process for bidding on a great assortment of exciting items.

    To view the items and bid, go to

    To place a bid, you will be asked to create a login using an email address and password. Verify your email and you’re good to bid. 

    Scroll through all the offerings and place your bids! Once the bid is submitted, you will get email updates so you don’t miss out on your favorite item!

    You can use your cell phone or computer to view and bid on items.  Just enter the link above in any browser (there isn’t an App) and you can do everything online, including making a payment with PayPal or a credit card.

    For the savvy bidder, there is a “proxy” bid you can put in place that will identify the maximum you want to pay for an item, but will only show the minimum bid to all viewers. If another person bids on that item, your bid will automatically increase up to the max you identified.

    Bidding will open on November 26 at 12:15 AM EST and end at 11:45 PM EST on November 28.  The item will be mailed to the winner. If the winner is outside the United States, they will be contacted for shipping details and cost.

    The Board of Governors wish to thank all the volunteers who made the week in New Jersey and Pennsylvania a success.  Naming names is a risky business but all would agree Eva did a great job with both Futurity/Maturity events this year, the Philadelphia Club for their work with 2 Specialties especially Larry and Carol Brown, and Scott Kellogg for all his work on the trophies...a spectacular table.

    Make your plans for next year as Hatboro and Montgomery will return to Macungie.  The annual dinner is planned for Thursday evening at the Brookside Country Club and the Futurity/Maturity will be on Saturday afternoon.  The weekend will end with our National Specialty on Sunday.

    KerryFest and Barn Hunt return in May with 4 Specialties and the Challenge of Champions.  2022 promises to be a great year for Kerry Blue Terriers and their owners.  All Kerry judging will be outside at Purina Farms in 2022.
