this amazing array of athletic dogs showcasing their special bond with their

human partners. When you arrive and complete your registration onsite

you will receive a special dog bandana for your dog(s) which allows you to

have your dog at our event site at the festival. However, no dogs are

allowed to walk around the other parts of the festival.


This allows you to drive up and unload either at the Park Tavern Lot or on 10th Street; however you must

still pay for parking and place their paid receipt in your car window or find Free parking on the street.

(a parking pass may not be necessary as everyone will have to pay for parking if you park at the Park Tavern)


This event does NOT allow you to bring your own tent, so tenting will be

provided, so do not bring anything you do not need as everyone will have

to share tenting; Also, because this is a Class A Festival downtown Atlanta

paid Parking is available at the Park Tavern Restaurant at 500 10th Street

to drive up and unload in the gravel parking lot but you will want to bring
