You are invited to participate in Baltimore Humane Society's DogFest 2017, held at the Baltimore Humane Society on our 365 acre property at 1601 Nicodemus Road in Reisterstown, on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 10:00am-4:00pm! This is a rain or shine event.

DogFest is our largest fundraiser and community event. Last year we welcomed over 3,500 animal lovers to this unique event, which encourages individuals and families to enjoy a day full of games, contests, activities, food and FUN!

As a vendor you will enjoy wonderful community exposure and sales opportunities for your products and services, as well as the good feeling of knowing that you're helping to care for the animals at the Baltimore Humane Society. Take a look at who is already joining us as a vendor.

  • DogFest is a rain or shine event and why we work hard to gather as many visitors as possible to each year's event. We make no guarantees or representation as to the attendance at each years event. The Baltimore Humane Society relies on the commitment of vendors to ensure DogFest is a successful event for all of our visitors. The fees collected from vendors are re-invested by the Baltimore Humane Society in programs to fulfill our life saving mission. As such, all vendor fees received after June 16, 2017 are non-refundable. It is the responsibility of the vendor to ensure all paperwork is submitted to the Baltimore Humane Society in advance of DogFest 2017 to ensure your business will be eligible for participation in the event. If you are unable or unwilling to submit your paperwork prior to the event, or attend the event, the non-refundable vendor fee will be treated as a donation to the Baltimore Humane Society to be used to help fulfill our life saving mission.
