CANADA’S CAPITAL REGION



Ottawa is best known for being the seat of the federal government. It is an architecturally stunning city with a unique combination of urban and rural settings. From cultural performances at the National Arts Centre to street performers in the Market, Ottawa has a wide range of activities to fit every taste. With over 29 local museums, visitors enjoy a variety of things to see and do. Ottawa offers visitors easy accessibility, a variety of meeting facilities, and excellent tourism infrastructure.
The Specialty is being held in conjunction with three All Breed Shows being held at the Carp Fairgrounds. The city of Ottawa has expanded and now includes Carp which still holds dear its rural charm.
There is a great Farmer's Market in Carp on Saturday mornings, with venders selling fresh baked goods in addition to in-season vegetables and fruit, as well as arts and crafts. We hope to leave you a minute or two between showings for a quick visit to the Farmer's Market.
Come and celebrate our Specialty and experience all that Ottawa and the Capital Region has to offer.
