Event Schedule

There will be tons of activities that the entire family can enjoy.

If you’re more interested in shopping, the Vendor Marketplace also opens at 9:00am where you can grab toys and treats for your pup and yourself.

At 10:00am the fundraising Pup Walk begins and the Silent Auction and Photo Booth opens where you can pose with your fur-friend with adorable props. Digital copies of your photos will be emailed to you for easy sharing.

You can also grab a pint of beer or two from the dog-friendly Black Lab Brewing beverage garden after 11:00am.

There will also, of course, be snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments for dogs and humans, too, as well as lawn games and a kid’s zone full of arts and crafts, scavenger hunts, face painting and more.

There are tons of activities for the pups too. They can participate in dog training demos with their pet parents, splash around in a pup pool, join the doggy fashion show, and enjoy food from the Bark n’ Bakery, a food truck just for dogs!
