Specialty shows are generally free and open to the public.  Parking or admittance fees are sometimes charged by the grounds.  Contact  the local club show sponsor for more information.

Each year, between April and June, ISCA hosts our National Specialty and Obedience Trial.  It is held on a rotating basis in one of four regions of the United States designated by the club. This four to five day event allows breeders, exhibitors and fanciers the opportunity to exhibit, discuss and examine the quality Irish Setters from across the country. An educational seminar, sight seeing tours and hospitality are some of the attractions of the National Specialty, in addition to the annual awards banquet. 

Local AKC Irish Setter Clubs may apply to ISCA to hold an ISCA Regional Specialty. Guidelines for applying for and holding an ISCA Regional Specialty
