For the second year, City Pages is taking some time to hang out in our parking lot with pups. This afternoon festival will feature a variety of attractions for dogs and humans alike. Meet with canine-focused organizations and businesses, including purveyors of adorable fashions (Lucy & Co.) and tasty eats (Raw Bistro Pet Fare, NutriSource Pet Food), plus the self-improvement experts of the Twin Cities Obedience Training Club. Famous dogs, aka the best kind of celebrity, will also be stopping by. Meet Ego, a border collie who spends his weekends hanging out in nature and sleeping in a tent, and local French bulldog Gus Gus, whose Instagram @GusGusintheCity features adventures all around the Twin Cities. There will be food truck eats, including Thai Thai Streets Food, 9 Yum Yum Ice Cream, and barbecue from the Fabled Rooster. We’ll have beer from 612Brew, as well as non-alcoholic options.

To pay proper homage to human’s best friend, bring your (well behaved, leashed) pup and grab a local brew from 612 Brew to enjoy an afternoon full of tail wags and wet kisses and experience treats from dog friendly vendors, mouth-watering food trucks (for two-and four-legged friends alike!), a doggie fashion show, a chance to meet local Instagram famous dogs including @PointerProblems, @endeavorsofego, @christophercline, @gusgusinthecity, @stanthebasset, @hollyupnorth & more!
