Many countries have hamster clubs or clubs for a variety of rodents or pets and hold regular shows.
These shows give hamster owners a chance to meet and talk to other owners and breeders as well as compete in the show with their hamsters.
There are often various classes for different types and colours of hamsters and the hamsters are judged on a range of criteria which may include size, colour, type, coat, etc.
Hamster shows often include classes for junior or novice exhibitors and may also include some fun classes.
