What is DogFest? 
DogFest is an event that happens all around the country.

This organization uses the most advanced technology capable of changing people’s lives with disabilities. 

Here’s how you can participate
Bring your family, friends, and dogs for a day of fun, festivities, inspiring speakers, dog demonstrations, music, food, and a costume contest! Admission is free. Fundraising is encouraged.
