This pup-friendly festival will include competitions, a 3-mile fun run (or walk!), and will even feature an on-site adoption meet and greet presented by the MSPCA, "dog lovers may even leave the event as dog owners!"

The day kicks off on Sunday, October 2nd at 10 AM with a new edition to the annual event, the MSPCA Fast & Furriest Run.Walk.Wag!

"New this year, MSPCA is partnering with us to bring their Fast & Furriest 3-mile fun run, walk, wag to the festival! Run, earn a finisher medal, and then join the barking lot party full of cold, fresh beer, food trucks and the best dog-friendly vendors." - Harpoon Dogtoberfest Event Details
