The largest event center in Medford, the Armory is the perfect setting for this popular show.
The Medford Armory Show benefits an important local charity, Dogs For the Deaf. Dogs For The Deaf rescues dogs from shelters along with helping people with deafness and other physical and mental challenges. Volunteers from the organization will be present at the Show, giving demonstrations and providing information on their unique and important service to dogs and the disabled community. A special drawing with 100% of the proceeds going directly to Dogs For the Deaf will be held both days. Demonstrations by hearing dogs will take place at 12 noon and 2pm on Saturday and at 1pm on Sunday.
