13th Annual DogFest
Saturday, April 25, 2020 | 11 am to 4 pm
Duboce Park, Duboce and Steiner, SF
FREE to watch
All events are free to watch, but pre-registration ($20) is typically required for your dog to compete.
Watch doggies compete for Best Trick, Best Costume, Best Ears, Best Bark and more.
Treat your human child to a day of inflatable obstacle courses, face painting, carnival games, delicious food, and find true love in the Rescue Zone.
DogFest is a celebration of dogs and kids benefiting SFUSD McKinley Elementary School, a K-5 public school at Castro and 14th streets.
Brace yourself – it really is corrupt, but it’s all in good fun with the goal of raising the most money possible for the school. The winners of each of the main categories (ears, bark, trick, etc.) and anyone who wants to buy their way in for $50 will be entered in this final contest of the day.
The audience bribes the judges (by throwing lots of money in buckets being passed around) to keep working and decide which dog will be crowned Best-In-Show.
