Best and formerly known as the Dog Days of Summer, the Dog Days of Denton celebration is in its 24th year!

Dog Days of Denton is the only event in town for and about our four legged friends. Ours is the original festival in Texas for pooches and their people and promotes responsible pet ownership and the importance of pet rescue in an entertaining outdoor format that remains free and open to the public. Arts, crafts, canine talent, educational demonstrations on topics such as canine CPR and fun contests all come together to make up one of Denton’s favorite annual events. Dog Days also enables pet-related nonprofits to raise awareness of their organization while raising much needed funds.

Dog Days of Denton welcomes FRIENDLY DOGS and their owners. All owners are responsible and liable for their pet(s). For everyone’s safety, dogs MUST BE ON A LEASH and have CURRENT VACCINATIONS.

Festival hours this year are Sunday, October 1st, 2017, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the North Texas State Fairgrounds, 2217 N. Carroll Blvd., in Denton.

Attendees are welcome to bring pet food donations for the Denton Animal Shelter and drop them off at the Information Booth.
