Round 1 Competition: Lane County Fairgrounds Livestock Arena, Eugene
Watch and experience some of the world’s most talented truffle dogs as they compete in the 3rd annual Joriad™ Truffle Dog Championship. The Joriad™ begins in the morning with a series of qualifying events where spectators can cheer-on the teams as they race to search for hidden truffle-scented targets. Finalists are announced at the end of the morning’s qualifying events.
Championship Finals: Into the Woods
The morning’s finalists will advance to the Joriad™ Field Trial the afternoon of the 26th for an authentic head-to-head and nose-to-ground action in the wild where nature alone determines location, variety, and quantity of rare Oregon truffles. Because truffle hunting in the field does not lend itself to spectator participation, this event is not open to the public, but everyone ticketed from the morning round is invited to attend the Gala Awards Ceremony in the early evening at the Hilton Eugene.
Sign up for The Joriad™ begins October 1.
