Pop-Pupalooza Dog Park

Your dog's favorite event is back with our spring Pop-Pupalooza! During this one-day event, dogs will be allowed off leash at our specially crafted dog park to run and romp to their heart's content.

The Dix Park pop-up dog park features four acres of fenced-in fun complete with a separate play area for small dogs. There will be plenty to enjoy for dogs and their owners including pet-themed vendors so you can purchase a new toy for your pup, learn about dog health & safety, pet adoption, and more!

For the humans, food and beer vendors will be at the park making sure you stay fed and hydrated while you play with your best friend. Bring your own lawn chairs, blankets, and anything else you need to keep yourself and your pooch cool and comfortable. There will also be fun raffles for pet (and human) prizes throughout the event!

Time: 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Please RSVP if you plan to attend this event. Having a count of how many people to expect helps us plan and we can contact you in the event of inclement weather.
