Why a pet festival? 

REST– Yes, it will be hot. It's August. We will have cooling splash pools and lots of water available to cool off those hot dogs! Lots of space to stretch out and take a break. 

PLAY – Lots of games, contests and FUN for everyone - humans and furry alike. Everyone is a winner at BARK in the PARK! Check our Facebook page for a schedule of events as we get closer to the festival. 


SHOP – Meet with our amazing vendors who have products and services to satisfy every budget and taste. Lots of ways to spoil your pets and also pick up everyday essentials. 

BARK in the PARK 2017 is dedicated to the kind and loving Jeff Scott (RIP 2016) who supported our festival from the beginning and lover of all things animal and loved his little furkid Tiffany The Pom....we will miss you Jeff.
