What’s Happening: Barktoberfest

Barktoberfest is back in Hampton!

The event, hosted by the Peninsula SPCA, will take place at Mill Point Park this Saturday, Oct. 20 from noon until 5 p.m. Admission starts at $5.

You don’t want to miss the Dog Walk, a fun walk that winds along the beautiful downtown Hampton waterfront! The money raised will benefit the animals of the Peninsula SPCA, which is a no-kill shelter that relies solely on community support to help care for the homeless animals.

In addition to the main event, there will be live music, food vendors, exhibitors and a costume contest for pets and humans. If you’re at least 21 years old, you can enjoy the Bow Wow Beer Garden featuring the best breweries in Hampton. There will also be samplings of Dog Star Vodka from Blue Sky Distillery.

“Well it’s just kind of a way for fellowship. For animal lovers to get together and also to raise some money for the Peninsula SPCA. It’s are second biggest fundraiser of the entire year,” said Ryan Downey from Visit Hampton.
