Join us Saturday, September 29th from 12pm-6pm for the Inaugural Richmond Dog Festival!

The Richmond Dog Festival is a celebration of dogs, dog owners, and dog lovers. This event brings together a network of over 35 vendors who serve the dog community in Richmond, such as trainers, dog sitters, rescue leagues, dog treat makers, etc. There will be craft beer, live music, demonstration seminars, food trucks, and even a doggie fashion show!

The Richmond Dog Festival will be held around the 17th Street Market on Franklin St., Grace St., and Ambler St.

Check out this link for parking information:

We will provide free bicycle parking right next to the festival.

Dogs are of course welcome to attend. Your four-legged friends must be socialized and leashed.

This is a rain or shine event!

There is a $1 suggested entry donation to the Enrichmond Foundation. Enrichmond is a 501(c)(3) public charity. Your attendance supports Enrichmond’s mission to enhance Richmond parks and activate its public spaces.

You shouldn’t rush out and adopt a dog for this festival but if you’re ready for the commitment please consider Richmond Animal Care and Control and Richmond SPCA. They always have animals that need a loving family. Biscuits and Gravy is one such dog and is available at RACC.
