You are invited to participate in the Baltimore Humane Society's DogFest 2013, to be held at the Baltimore Humane Society at 1601 Nicodemus Road in Reisterstown, on Saturday, October 5, 2013 from 10:00am-5:00pm! This is a rain or shine event.
DogFest is the Baltimore Humane Society's largest fundraiser and community event. Last year we welcomed over 5,000 guests, and this year we are expecting 6,000-7,000 pet owners to attend this year. This is a community event that encourages pet owners and families to attend and enjoy this special day to honor their pet, and also to create awareness regarding preventing animal cruelty in our community.
DogFest is an extravaganza for dogs and their families. It will be a fun-filled day of dog games and contests, agility runs, pet education services, with many dog rescue groups attending with their pets that are up for adoption. Pets will also be able to play in our swimming pools and sand boxes and participate in our very popular Dog Costume Contest juried by a panel of celebrity judges. Mary Swift Photography will also be on hand once again to lead our “Best of the Fest” photo contest, the winners of which will be printed in the Baltimore Sun.
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.
Please download the form on this page, which contains all of the information you will need to sign up as a vendor.
