Festival & Dog Walk

To Benefit the Animals of the Peninsula SPCA

Mill Point Park in Downtown Hampton

Downtown Hampton goes to the dogs as Mill Point Park (100 Eaton Street Hampton, VA 23669) welcomes the Barktoberfest Dog Walk & Festival, a fur-tastic event hosted by the Peninsula SPCA. Help raise money for the adoption-guarantee shelter by showing your support and bringing out your special furry four-legged family friends.

Highlights include live music by Lost Soul Society, vendors, local animal rescue groups, and more! In addition, there will be a Bow-Wow Beer Garden featuring breweries from Hampton, including Sly Clyde Ciderworks, Bull Island Brewing Company, The Vanguard Brewpub and Distillery, The Oozlefinch Craft Brewery, and The St. George Brewing Co. There will also be samplings of Dog Star Vodka from Blue Sky Distillery.

Don’t miss the Dog Walk, the showcase event of the day, a fun walk that winds along the beautiful downtown Hampton waterfront! The money raised will benefit the animals of the Peninsula SPCA! The Peninsula SPCA is an Adoption Guarantee, or no-kill, shelter that relies completely on support from the local community to help us care for the homeless animals.

There will also be a pets and people costume contest! Guests are encouraged to participate in a costume contest (two categories: pets only and pets & people) for great prizes.

Other highlights of the day include the Dog Cake Walk, Bobbing for Tennis Balls, Demonstrations, Dog Yoga, and more.

Ashley from Z104 and Devon from 94.9 The Point will be on hand for all the fun! Guests are encouraged to register in advance for beer tasting tickets and dog walk to receive their t-shirt and/or souvenir glass
