On Sunday, dogs are welcome on the festival grounds for a few different awesome activities. All dogs have to be on leashes at all times, so be a responsible owner and abide by the rules. After all, everyone wants to have the perfect day, right? Here is what the Dogtoberfest schedule includes:

  • CityDog Magazine Cover Dog Model Contest –  for a $10 fee you can see how cute your cutie is compared to all the other cuties.
  • Seattle Fly Dogs – dogs run, people smile, dogs fly, people cheer. Simple and fun.
  • #GOHAWKS – Dogs are welcome inside Fremont Studios to watch the Seahawks take on the Saints

Street Scramble

Okay, so think of this as a scavenger hunt with some big-time hustle. You can run, walk, team up, or fly solo, all in order to find as many checkpoints as you can within the time limit.

Big Biers & Steins

Okay, so we had to include a beer-focused aspect somewhere. After all, the Fremont Oktoberfest is one of Seattle’s favorite parties of the year. Fill up your boot or steins for $20 at the start and then only $10 for refills as the party goes on. Prost!
