This year celebrates Woofstock’s sixteenth year of cuteness overload happening on May 25th and 26th at Woodbine Park in Toronto.
What is Woofstock?
Woofstock is the largest festival for dogs in North America, drawing tens of thousands of dogs and their humans together.
16 years ago, Woofstock launched in the Distillery District in Toronto’s East End, but quickly outgrew the limited location. It transitioned to the St. Lawrence Market neighborhood but outgrew that too. So, Woofstock chose Woodbine Park in The Beaches for their new location in 2013: Toronto’s most dog-friendly area in the city.
“We’re the leader of the pack,” says Teanna, one of Woofstock’s CEO’s on dog festival trends. “We’re recognized in Canada and abroad. The word is out that this is the place for ‘all things canine!’”
What can you expect?
Hundreds of vendors with all things dogs: from pet treats, accessories and products to doggy-training services and volunteer opportunities. From practical to frivolous you’ll find everything in between.
Ever wanted to dress your pooch up? This would be the weekend! You’ll see hundreds of pups and their parents in matching costumes.
Does your pup have what it takes? Woofstock boasts dozens of wacky contests, races, and fashion shows. Also, there’s a ton of cash prizes so you can splurge on your pet.
