Dog-Friendly Festival Planned Near Union Market Next Month
A festival will bring dogs, beer, food trucks and live music to an event space near Union Market next month.
Barkly, a professional dog-walking service, and The Big Bad Woof, a pet supplies company, will host the second annual Woofstock at the DC Pavilion (1399 5th St. NE) on Saturday, Aug. 6 from 3-7 p.m.
The event will have craft beer from Raven Brewery, local food trucks, giveaways and a special animal adoption event.
“People in D.C. are hungry for dog-friendly events,” Barkly co-founder Dave Comiskey said.
Around 350 people attended last year’s Woofstock event despite dismal rainy conditions, Comiskey said. This time around he’s expecting “well over 1,000 guests” to attend, weather permitting.
Locals can snag a free ticket online to attend the event.
