All American Grooming Show

August 18 – 21, 2016 // Located in Wheeling, IL
The All American Grooming Show is probably the most unique grooming show in the country. And that makes perfect sense, when you consider that it was founded by one of the industry’s most unique and passionate legends. Jerry Schinberg always wanted the best for the groomers, but he also wanted it done with flair.

A few issues ago, I devoted this column to the subject of the history of the professional grooming industry. Shirlee Kalstone and I have collectively wondered why no one has ever attempted to document how far the art of grooming has advanced in the past few decades from their modest beginnings. Shirlee recalls years ago in the mid-1970’s, while at the All-American Grooming Show in Chicago, that she was shocked to read a blurb in one of the Chicago papers that in the scheme of things “dog groomers were placed slightly above garbage collectors” who were on the bottom of their list.

If you take full advantage of everything the All American Grooming Show has to offer, you will have more than earned the chance to live it up at the Groom Team USA 25th Anniversary ‘80s Party on Saturday night.

The All American Grooming Show will return to The Westin Chicago North Shore in Wheeling, IL, from August 15–18, 2013. Following the show’s 40th annual event in 2012, founder Jerry Schinberg sold the show to Barkleigh Productions.
