The seventh annual Woofstock Dog Festival is coming up, so circle your calendar for Saturday, June 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for the dog party of the early summer.
This year the festival, which traditionally takes place throughout Elmwood Park, will be located in the upper part of the park near the public library at the corner of Elm and Jefferson.
Nice location, according to this photo I shamelessly lifted from the event’s Facebook page.
The festival offers a variety of entertainment for families, including music, games, contests and food, as well as local vendors selling doggy-related goodies.
Among the many attendees will be representatives of local services for pets, including rescue groups. If you want to bring a donation to help out homeless pets, here’s a list.
It’s a great opportunity to get your well-behaved pooch out for some fresh air and friendly socialization.
Tickets are $5 (cash only) at the gate.
