Paws in the Park

June 15 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

$20 – $25

Paws in the Park Dog Walk and Festival is coming to the fairgrounds in Gaithersburg on Saturday, June 15, 2024!

Hosted by the Montgomery County Humane Society,  this is the event every dog in Montgomery County (and beyond) looks forward to — a festival created just for dogs, their people, and anyone who loves pets and wants to help animals in need.  It’s a day of vendors, food, music, games, contests, agility competitions, prizes, and a dog walk as the highlight event!

For you, it’s a great place to meet hundreds of pet lovers all in one place . It’s your best opportunity of the year to showcase your business to the area’s most engaged pet people, and at the same time, help the Montgomery County Humane Society raise funds to help homeless pets and other animals in need.  It’s our biggest fundraiser of the year!

Please note: retractable leashes will not be permitted at this event.

Now accepting Sponsor and Vendor applications!  Preparations for Paws in the Park are underway, and we’re now accepting sponsor and vendor applications!  Don’t delay — general event information, sponsor opportunities, and vendor and sponsor registration forms are attached, so you can reserve your spot right away!
