Barktober Fest

Legacy Rescue will be at Barktober Fest!!

It will be a fun day for local dogs & their people to enjoy the season and support a good cause. Barktober Fest will include family and dog-friendly activities and events, games, live music, trick dog & sporting dog presentations, vendors, dog costume contest, and more!

Sunday, October 28th
Wright-Locke Farm
78 Ridge St, Winchester, MA
11am – 3pm

The event is free and open to the public but people are encouraged to sign up through Eventbrite –
Tickets can be purchased to participate in some of the activities. An event flyer is attached.

For vendors/sponsors/non-profits: Set-up can begin at 9:30 with all booths fully set up by 11. Booths must stay open until 3pm. Tables will be provided or you can bring your own tent if you have one. I know A-DOG had offered space to you at their table but you can have your own one if you’d like.

Prizes, giveaways and handouts are allowed, no raffles allowed though!

The farm is wheelchair accessible with parking and accessible restrooms as well. The main areas of the event (food, vendor tables, kids activities and most dog activities) are all accessible but worth noting that the surface is primarily gravel. Pet photography will be up a hillside that may be difficult to access.

Animal treats are allowed, human treats can only be provided by our approved food vendors

Barktober Fest welcomes all friendly, on-leash pups and their people. Dogs should be on a non-retractable leash no longer that 6 feet and be current on vaccinations. There will be special activities for kids so bring the whole family!
