The 80th Annual Cotton States Cat Show

November 3 & 4, 2018 at the Infinite Energy Center in Duluth, GA.
 Cotton States 2018 Cat Show Announcement
The Cotton States show is known for elaborate ring decorations and this upcoming show will be no exception.

The first Cotton States Cat Show was held on December 2nd & 3rd 1938 at the Atlantan Hotel. There were 118 cats and kittens entered in that first show. Read more in Club History.

The Cotton States Cat Club, Inc is a 501(c)7 non-profit organization that has been producing Cat Fanciers’ Association licensed cat shows in the Atlanta area since 1938.

The Infinite Energy Center is currently building a parking deck to replace the large parking lot in front of the show hall which is in the Forum.  Not to worry!  We think you'll like the temporary parking solution even better than the big lot where you have normally parked.  

Parking Map

While the deck is being built, a temporary parking lot has been created that is even more convenient to the show hall than the lot under construction.
A "Parking Map" can be accessed on The new parking lot is B4 (between the Arena and the Forum).

As you arrive for the show, follow the "Cat Show" signs from Sugarloaf Parkway and/or signs for Forum Parking. B4 provides access to the lower entrance of the Forum and is on the same level as the show hall (no bridge to cross from the parking lot to the building and no escalator or elevator to maneuver).

A drop off area is available directly in front of this door as well as several Handicapped parking spaces.

If Lot B4 is full, overflow parking is available in Parking Lot A1 with continuous trolley service between the parking lot and the Forum entrance.

We look forward to seeing you at the Cotton States Cat Show this weekend.

I love cat shows!

What is a Cat Show?

Cat Shows are a fun occasion for all cat lovers to see many different cat breeds up close. They can become more fun when you know what to expect and can follow the proceedings.

Can I Show My Cat?

As well as pedigreed cats, many cat shows, including the Cotton States Cat Show, may also judge the Household Pet Class (HHP). Many of our local rescue groups in fact enter some of their residents in the HHP competition.

Is there a Youth Program?

Some cat shows offer the CFA Youth Feline Education Program (YFEP). The program is designed to allow youth to enjoy the cat fancy and excel at their own pace through the activities and age categories while enhancing their appreciation for felines and feline inspired professions. This year Cotton States will not be offering this program.
