About Winter Classic

Two separate, UKC licensed Nite Hunts. Hunt the same dog both nights!

The UKC Winter Classic Nite Hunt and Bench Show is an annual event held in February each year. The purpose of this event is to bring a major UKC event to the people of the South, while at the same time providing a vacation opportunity for those in the North.

The UKC Winter Classic Hunt and Show is one of the largest and most prestigious events in the United States. Much like Autumn Oaks, it is a family affair where old friends are reacquainted and new ones are made.
