Exhibitor Move-In & Unloading

Exhibitor move-in begins Monday March 25, from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.


On Monday use the Jefferson Street entrance to the Peoria Civic Center to access the unloading area. Follow the signs and instructions from the Show Committee personnel posted there. Hours will be listed in the judging program and on the web site.

Vehicles may be permitted to unload inside the building Monday morning only.

Flashers must be left on the entire time you are unloading. Any exhibitor who does not adhere to this directive or does not remove a vehicle when asked to do so will be subject to a bench show committee hearing.

Please note that due to the higher number of grooming spaces reserved than expected, most vehicles may not be able to drive inside the building because the aisles and turns may now be too tight for vehicles.
