Coming Up: Barktoberfest 2019

Barktoberfest 2019

Oktoberfest is fun, but have you ever heard of Barktoberfest? In a few days, this cool event is coming to Columbus! Oktoberfest is known for celebrating beer and German culture—and Barktoberfest 2019 draws on that tradition. It also adds something new into the mix: dogs! Not only is it a fun event for the family, but you could even come home with a new furry friend. After all, who can resist puppy dog eyes?

What is Barktoberfest 2019?

Oktoberfest is an autumn tradition, bringing people together. Barktoberfest 2019 is designed to bring people—and pups—together to support a good cause: Animal Ark Rescue. This incredible organization is home to cats and dogs who are in search of a forever family. They foster and shelter pets—and they need our help!

At Barktoberfest 2019, attendees can make a difference in the lives of animals as they enjoy the afternoon. Even if you’re not able to adopt, you can visit or make a donation!

This event also includes fun activities and offerings like:

  • Adoption specials;
  • A dunk tank;
  • A costume walk contest for both children and dogs;
  • Face-painting
  • A photobooth;
