17th Annual Barktoberfest Promises to be Best One Yet
Saturday, October 28
9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The 17th Annual Barktoberfest Celebration promises to again be one of the best canine focused events in the Pensacola region. Vendors will have the latest products and services for you and your canine friend. Some of the vendors have give-away items for the event.
The fall weather will be wonderful and food and beverages abundant as the Pensacola Humane Society assembles an event that is like no other in the area. The public is encouraged to join in the fun starting at 9 a.m.
Contests are always a part of the fun and these begin starting at 10 a.m. in Fountain Park, which is located at the South end of Seville Square. There is a morning and an afternoon session. The agility display and the doggie races are always a hit, so plan to stop by this year's Barktoberfest.
Event tee shirts will be available for purchase near the Silent Auction Tent located next to the Pavilion. If you can't wait, for your tee shirt, visit the online store and purchase them early. For more information on the event, please give us a call at 850-898-3384.
The event serves as the primary fundraiser of the year for the Pensacola Humane Society's Shelter and Low Cost Spay & Neuter Clinic. It also serves as an opportunity for the other participating rescues and shelters to raise funds for their orgahization and to recruit volunteers that support the cause.
This year's event is again presented by our friends at Johnstone Supply company and through their generosity we have allowed us to feature a new presenting sponsor in Bob Tyler Toyota. Their addition has allowed us to offer a number of things to this year's event - The Most Adorable Pet Contest and the mobile phone application for the event.
