On Saturday & Sunday September 14 and 15, the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce presents the 3rd annual Barktoberfest. Come out to Memorial Park on 13 Mile and Woodard from 11am-6pm to enjoy the Octoberfest-fun with your pups, a beer in hand, and great music. This event is sure to be an exciting day for dogs and dog lovers with contests, races, and dog-related shopping from our vendors who are eager to bring a little extra joy to your furry friend’s day. But don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about the owners! Thanks to support from OCC, the weekend-long festivities will include bluegrass tunes and live music from Nora Jane Struthers and more artists. And as we all know, the best way to listen to music in the summertime is with a cold craft beer in hand from any of our several craft beers on tap. The Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to wrapping up the summer with you and your adorable pups. So, leash up the pups, come ready for cuteness and fun, and maybe even register for one of the many contests at our Registration Booth! Entrance fee is $5 and free for children under 10; a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Detroit Dog Rescue and the Royal Oak Animal Shelter.
