The 2020 Oregon Truffle Festival kicks off with The Joriad™ North American Truffle Dog Championship, wherein spectators cheer for truffle dogs and their trainers as they compete to find hidden truffle-scented targets. From Chihuahuas to Lagotto Romagnolos, dogs of all breeds are invited to compete in The Joriad, the only competition of its kind in North America.
The Joriad’s first round welcomes spectators at the Lane County Fairgrounds in the morning and the top five dogs compete in a second and final round in the field. Truffle dogs and their owners gather in the evening for the perennial favorite Parade of Dogs.
No dogs except those entered in the competition are allowed in the venue.
