First Thursday: Dog Days in Del Ray

May 06, 2021
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Along Mt. Vernon Avenue

Del Ray, one of the most dog-friendly neighborhoods in the region, highlights “Dog Days in Del Ray” during its May First Thursday. The monthly street festival takes place on May 6 from 6 p.m. to dusk along Mount Vernon Avenue.

Mask up and bring your favorite four-legged friend out to the Avenue for a variety of canine-themed activities for dogs (and their humans!), including the ribbon cutting for the Dogs of Del Ray mural on the Stomping Ground building. The event is free and open to all.

Participants are encouraged to bring dry and wet food for dogs and cats for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria provides shelter to animals in need and promotes adoptions, animal welfare, and responsible pet ownership in the Alexandria community. Donations will be collected at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at Mt. Vernon & Oxford Avenues.

Held the first Thursday from April to September along Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, First Thursday is a series of free outdoor street festivals that bring the community together around a fun theme, benefiting a local nonprofit.
