Dog Days of Kenmore Festival for Dogs & Their People | Community Spirit
Hundreds of Dogs (and their people) from all over Western New York will be converging at Mang Park in the Village of Kenmore this weekend for the first annual Dog Days of Kenmore festival event!
The Dog Days of Kenmore is a fun, free event for canines and their people; a celebration of dogs and the enjoyment and interest they bring to our lives. The Dog Days excitement includes dog sports, contests with prizes, education and training, dog vendors and activities, live music and entertainment, treats for humans and canines, and much more! Over 50 vendors will be in attendance and there will be an agility course, fly ball, and more! Lots of local rescues will be on site so if you are thinking about adopting a new pet, you need to be there Sunday!
The event will be held on August 13 and 14 in Mang Park, located on Wilbur and Mang Avenues (off Elmwood) in Kenmore and will be held rain or shine. Well socialized, friendly dogs are welcome; dogs must be on a leash. The event website is DogDaysWNY.com
