Natural Awakenings Washington DC Metro

Head on over (Fido too) to Woofstock

Jul 29, 2016 10:39AM
The most-anticipated dog-friendly party will be taking place from 3 to 7 pm on August 6 in the DC Pavilion (Gallaudet Pavilion) and all are invited. Barkly, The Big Bad Woof, and DC Pavilion are proud to announce the second annual Woofstock, a festival celebrating the dogs and dog-lovers of the D.C. metro area. The event will feature a line-up of award-winning bands, craft beer by Raven Brewery, local food trucks, exclusive treats, giveaways and a special animal adoption event with the recently merged Washington Humane Society and Washington Animal Rescue League. Of course, there will be lots of puppies, too.

The free event is an annual festival established in 2015 by Barkly, a local leading pet-technology company, to create a unique pet-friendly experience for animal lovers and celebrate and promote animal compassion, welfare and education. They are joined in sponsorship by The Big Bad Woof, a well-known and beloved resource for wholesome and holistic pet foods, supplements and other assorted pet treats and toys, with locations in Hyattsville and Takoma D.C. and local delivery. Also joining as a sponsor this year is the DC Garden, which is a new outdoor beer garden and entertainment venue, and boasts the largest pet-friendly outdoor space in the city.

Tickets are free but will be going fast. Last year, this event “sold-out” and left many dog-lovers wishing they had gotten tickets early.

Location: 1399 5th St NE, D.C. Tickets and more info can be found at
