World's Ugliest Dog Contest
The World’s Ugliest Dog ® Contest takes place every year at the Sonoma-Marin Fair. This is part of the Dog Lover's Festival that takes place during the fair. The festival starts at noon on Friday and ends with the World's Ugliest Dog contest at 6 pm.
The contest started off as a lark and it grew into a well...it grew into a big lark. It’s still the zany, silly un-dog show it always was. It’s just that nowadays, the national media covers the small-town event and competitors travel from across the United States for a chance at the prize. Obviously, the $1,500 purse is not what motivates this competition. Instead, it’s simply the glory of proving that your pooch is the ugliest beast in the world. And you know how that is…when they’re that ugly they’re cute.
Attending the World’s Ugliest Dog ® Contest is included in the low price of admission to the fair as are the carnival, concerts, and other entertainment. The Sonoma-Marin Fair runs June 19th - 23rd, 2013. $15 admission for adults, $10 for 4-12 year olds and seniors, children under age 4 are free.
