The Columbia Terrier Association of Maryland, Inc., Terrier Group shows are held in the southwest corner of the Cow Palace at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium, Maryland.  

Our show is an exhibitor's dream, held indoors in a spacious, well-lit, climate-controlled building.  Grooming space is plentiful, stretching along both long sides of the building, with the roomy show rings clustered in the center.  Aisleways are wide, allowing exhibitors to get their dogs in and out of the rings without crowding.  Chairs line all open sides of the show rings, so viewing your favorite breeds is easy and comfortable.  And, we keep our show entry fees low, with breaks for all Puppy Classes!

Outside, our exhibitors will find unlimited paved parking for both cars and RVs surrounding the Cow Palace. Open access on three sides of the building allow for ease of loading and unloading.  Admission to the show building, parking, electricity, and grooming space are all free.  

CTAM hosts numerous breed clubs each year which hold their specialty shows and supported entries at our show.  Do your dogs need majors?  Are you a prospective judge, looking for ringside mentoring?  Nearly every Terrier breed boasts substantial entries at the CTAM show, providing a high likelihood that those majors will be there for the exhibitor looking to title their dog.  And for the new judge who needs to see many fine examples of the Terrier breeds in competition together, we can provide experienced breeders and breeder-judges to sit at your elbow and help you with the nuances of their favorite breed.

We invite and encourage all of the supporting breed clubs which choose to do so to set up notions tables and host hospitality for their club members, exhibitors and guests.  The more the merrier!  There are also many vendors who attend the CTAM shows, selling beautiful Terrier-themed and hand-crafted items, so there is no dearth of shopping for those who are so inclined.  And don't forget our annual Raffle, where a small investment in tickets can win you a one-of-a-kind, individually-designed and hand-made item which you will treasure!

Finally, the Maryland State Fairgrounds is sited in the heart of Timonium, immediately proximal to I-83, restaurants, hotels, and shopping.  SEE YOU THERE!
