OUR FOURTH NATIONAL CONVENTION:
CRCS is proud to present the 96th annual American Rabbit Breeders Association Convention and Show. The show wilL be held October 20-23, 2019 at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center in Reno, Nevada. The show will host approximately 15,000 show quality rabbits and guinea pigs entered from all over the world. The show will be held in conjunction with the 11th Rabbitcon Annual Conference. Rabbitcon is the industry’s premiere educational symposium.
The previous CRCS hosted shows in 2001, 2009 and 2016 were among the finest shows ever produced with many “firsts” in the modern era of ARBA Conventions.The 2001 ARBA Convention was the first to have an interactive website, on-line entries, credit card entries, a Best in Show extravaganza, convention style name badges and lanyards, a “Best of Breed row,” and a results book with individual placements. Many of these breakthroughs were continued by subsequent convention hosts. The 2009 show premiered the first annual Rabbitcon with top name educators in the rabbit and cavy show world giving informative seminars on current topics. The Rabbitcon tradition has continued every years since in every region of the United States.
