Barktoberfest: A Costumed Fall Festival for Dogs & their People!
Our biggest event of the year, Barktoberfest is Middle Tennessee's original costume-friendly fall festival dedicated to dogs and their people! Barktoberfest welcomes over 3,000 guests to enjoy live music, local food trucks, a pet adoption fair and 40+ vendor booths. Of course, the most popular part of the event is our Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest, where pets and people compete to win over $3,000 in fabulous costume prizes! (Contest entry fee is $10 cash per contest in our Dog Costume Contest and Dog/People Costume Contest.) General event admission is FREE for the whole family!
We'll post more details in the coming weeks and months.
