Great Lakes Region Home
Welcome to the home of the GREAT LAKES REGION of The Cat Fanciers' Association, Inc. (CFA). Our geographical region borders all five of North America's Great Lakes, and includes the following US states and Canadian provinces:
- Kentucky (North of the 38th parallel)
- New York (West of the 77th meridian)
- Ontario, Canada (East of the 90th meridian/West of the 77th meridian)
- Pennsylvania (West of the 77th meridian)
- West Virginia
What is it about our region that makes it so GREAT? Simply - it's our exhibitors, the cats and the clubs. Plan to spend a fun day visiting one of our shows, and have a great time admiring the cats, watching the judging, and talking to the breeders and exhibitors. Take advantage of our discount admission coupon - good for admission at any CFA cat show held within the Great Lakes Region.
