Sept. 11-12 – Barktoberfest at Royal Oak’s Memorial Park

Royal Oak, MI – It’s a fall festival for dogs and their people! Centered around locally-brewed craft beer, music, dog events and pet related vendors, this is the most dog-friendly event in town!

Barktoberfest encourages you to leash up your pooch pal and come out to enjoy a locally brewed beer, food and live music while you browse vendor booths with everything from pet-related products to locally made crafts to bottlecap creations and cool wearables for craft beer collectors. Dogs can compete in the Howl-a-ween Costume Contest, Weiner Dog Race, and More.

So bring your BFF — human or canine — for an afternoon of food, shopping, fun, music, and oh yeah … locally brewed beer. $5 per person (kids under 10 free). IDs are required. Live entertainment, food, dog contests and shopping — centered around locally-brewed craft beer — make this a fun event for all ages!

Live music will be provided by Just 3 Guitars and Half Light Music on Saturday and Andy Patalan and Orbitsuns on Sunday.

Memorial Park is located at 31050 Woodward Avenue just north of 13 Mile.
