Day of the Dog Festival and 5k at Congressional Cemetery: May 2
Join us for our annual puppypalooza on May 2 from 10 to 3 as we celebrate everything we love about dogs! Congressional Cemetery is known on Capitol Hill as one of the best places to walk dogs, but usually that privilege is reserved for K9 Corps members. However, on Day of the Dog the cemetery will be open to all members of the public and their pups – a special opportunity for dog lovers to experience this beautiful and historic site. Many local pet vendors and services will participate, including rescue organizations with dogs available for adoption.
Admission will be FREE for all dogs and humans, with tickets for sale for special activities, including a raffle. Registration for the 5k and kids run are $40 and $10, respectively. Activities will include contests and games (for both kids and dogs), demonstrations, free yoga, and pet portraits by artist Erin Murray. Some of the most popular of DC’s food trucks will be there, and beer-tasting tables will be hosted by Port City Brewing Company and Atlas Brew Works.
