About the Bryn Mawr Hound Show

The first Bryn Mawr Hound Show was held in 1914, making it one of the oldest hound shows in the country.  Currently, the show typically draws 35 to 45 exhibiting packs, showing more than 500 hounds in 6 rings: English Foxhounds, American Foxhounds, Crossbred Foxhounds, Penn-Marydel Foxhounds, Beagles and Bassets. In 2012, we introduced an exciting new Best in Show class, where the Champion Beagle, Basset, and Foxhound compete for this overall title.

The show is held on the grounds of the Radnor Hunt Club, 826 Providence Road, Malvern PA, 19355.  The 2017 Show will be held on Saturday, June 3.
