Del Ray Dog Fest 2024

Save the date for the 2nd Annual Del Ray Dog Fest, an outdoor festival celebrating dogs, their owners and the Del Ray community.

The Del Ray Dog Fest is a fun outdoor event that will include dog-centered activities, dog menu items, live music, vendors and food on Sunday, April 14 from 11am- 3pm at the George Washington Middle School parking lot. This festival is dog friendly and outdoors, rain or shine. Following the event, there will be a “Yappy Hour” for owners and their pets at participating restaurants. Special thanks to our presenting sponsor, The Peele Group!

Continue the celebration with Yappy Hours from 3-6pm at local participating restaurants/bars with featured drink and food specials.

This event benefits Aussie Rescue of the Mid-Atlantic, an incredible local rescue started in Del Ray that is an all-volunteer, foster-based rescue made up of Australian Shepherd owners. Collectively, the founding members have devoted countless hours in animal rescue for a variety of organizations and in a variety of capacities.  Learn more at aussierescueofthemidatlantic.org
