Bark in the Park June 11

Knoxville’s Bark in the Park, a celebration for dogs and people, will be held at the World’s Fair Park Festival Lawn on Saturday, June 11, 2016. Gates will open at 3 pm with a five-dollar entry donation.

The festival includes games and contests for people and their pooches, plus the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley’s Kid’s Corner will feature face painting, henna tattoos, balloon art and more.

Festival vendors will include artisans, pet-oriented businesses, and pet-friendly businesses. There will be lots of great food and festival goers will be able to cool off with a cold drink at the “Barkin’ Beer Garden sponsored by the Bearden Beer Market and Yazoo Brewing Company.

And to help keep Fido cool, there will be cool-down pools and Grayson Subaru’s Misting Tent. Of course, Rescue Alley will be there as well, representing hardworking specialized animal rescues.
