The Festival: 10am-5pm
The Mutt Strut: 9-10am
Join fellow animal lovers at the Loudoun County Fairgrounds on Saturday, September 27th as Friends of Homeless Animals hosts its signature event, Barktoberfest: A Purrfect Pet Celebration.
Bring the whole family, including your beloved fur kids! We’ll be gathering from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm to listen to live music, play games (kids and dogs), shop from vendors and artisans, enjoy food and drink from food trucks and the Pouring for Paws corner, watch canine demonstrations, participate in a Mutt Strut and much more --- all to help raise much needed funds to allow FOHA to continue its mission of rescuing and finding “forever” homes for homeless animals.
Address of the Fairgrounds: 17558 Dry Mill Road, Leesburg VA.
THE MUTT STRUT
Fetch your sneakers and your furry friend for the Barktoberfest Mutt Strut. There are many ways to participate in the walk. Register today and join walkers who will be raising money to support our mission of saving abandoned, abused and neglected cats and dogs! You can walk with or without a dog, in memory of a beloved pet, or in honor of your cat.
The strut will have a new twist this year. Stay tuned for details. Registration begins May 1.
- Join as an individual walker (with or without your dog) and collect donations and pledges from friends and family.
- Form a Pack (great for groups, families or companies) and work toward fundraising goals together.
- Be a member of the Cat Nappers/Let Sleeping Dogs Lie club and collect donations for your cat or dog that is unable to participate. Heck! You can even be a member if rising early on Saturday mornings just isn’t your thing.
