Pet Fest

May 19th, 2024, 9am – 1pm

The 7th Annual Pet Fest will take place on Sunday, May 19th in Glens Falls City Park. You and your properly leashed, well-behaved companions are invited to this “pet-friendly” celebration to enjoy the day in Downtown Glens Falls!

The Glens Falls Collaborative is once again hosting Pet Fest in collaboration with North Country Paws for Obedience, local Canine Enrichment Center & group of leaders/ trainers who are dedicated to Adventure, Fulfillment, and Relationship with our community and their canine companions!

Pet Fest will take place in Glens Falls City Park Sunday, May 19th, 2024. From 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, the public is invited to bring their well-behaved, properly leashed pets to this pet-friendly event.

Pet owners will be able to interact with different community partners that specialize in helping and educating pet owners & our community!

Pet Fest will kick off at 9:00am. Among the vendors will be concessions, interactive demos from North Country Paws for Obedience, and a Lure Course provided by Alpha Dog. The Alpha Dog Lure Course allows your dog to run through the course to test their skills. The Lure Course will be part of the criteria for the “Dogs Got Talent” Contest.

There will be a Fashion Show for Adoptable Dogs At 12:00 pm, followed by a “Puppy Parade” that will be led by the winners of the Talent Contest around the perimeter of Glens Falls City Park. Patrons will be able to interact with vendors to learn more about how they can help their pets and purchase goods that will be beneficial to them as owners and their furry family members.

The Glens Falls Collaborative and its partners are hoping to provide a great day full of enrichment, resources, and a truly one-of-a-kind experience. By calling on local businesses who are part of the Collaborative and prospective members, they believe that this event will be bigger than years past, drawing over 200 participants to have a fun day with their pets!

This event is for you and our furry friends to enjoy.  All pets are welcome! There will be a Dog’s Got Talent Contest, demonstrations, Adoptable Dog Fashion Show, Lure Course, and vendors from groomers, boarders, non-profits, veterinarians, and more!
