About Coonhound World Championship

The most prestigious title in Coonhounds.

This event offers three days of world-class competition. Participants compete for prizes provided by the event sponsors, as well as prestige; the World Nite Hunt Champion and World Bench Show Champion are crowned.

Competitors in this annual competition start as part of a group of thousands of World Champion hopefuls, representing entries from all over the U.S. and Canada.

The field of hopefuls is narrowed to the best-of-the-best coonhounds and handlers during the more than 150 Regional Qualifying Events that take place across the country throughout the year.

These qualified entries are again required to show their merit by competing in one of seven semifinal events, also scattered throughout the country. Semifinal events challenge the participants from each region to ensure only the top contenders make it to the World Championship Finals.

This event is the third leg of the exciting UKC Triple Crown program, sponsored by Black Gold Premium Dog Food.
