DogFest 2013 is a mutt-tastic festival at one of the most dog-friendly parks in the city and the biggest dog event in San Francisco.

Watch doggies compete for Best Trick, Best Costume, Best Coat, Best Ears and more. Local celebrity dog show judges include Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go’s and Nigel Twist of the Alarm. Enjoy entertainment from emcee Daniel Handler, official representative of Lemony Snicket.

Treat your human child to a day of jumpy houses, face painting, and carnival games in the Kid Kennel (bring some cash for activities). Find true love in the dog Rescue Zone. Catch a silly dog comedy & stunt show by Busy Bee Dogs.
