Poochapalooza: Give your dog the day out they deserve! Saturday, July 14, 2018 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Asbery Field, 4th & Alder, downtown Marysville [directions][event map] Don't miss Snohomish County's biggest summer-time dog festival celebrating its 12th year of giving dogs the day out they deserve. This year’s event will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, July 14 at Asbery Field, 1605 7th St. in downtown Marysville. Poochapalooza is sponsored by Marysville Dog Owners Group (M-DOG).
We are thrilled to deliver an event that keeps tails wagging, with contests, the Fashions & Rescues Runway Show, Running of the Wieners dachshund and mixed-breed races, barn hunt and lure coursing demos, Olympic Disc Dogs, dozens of vendors, food and some surprises! Keep checking back on this website as we update regularly. Plenty to see and do!
Event Admission: $5+ suggested donation gets a goodie bag for the first 400 visitors. Donations support M-DOG, the volunteer group that maintains Marysville's Strawberry Fields for Rover Off-Leash Park.
Proceeds raised support needs at the dog park, with funds this year replacing the fence at the 3-acre dog park, as well as M-DOG's community activities.
Poochapalooza announces contests for 2017!
To keep things fun and fresh for Poochapalooza visitors, we like to mix things up in the contests we offer. This year, we have brought back the Celebrity Lookalike contest (or owner-pet lookalike), Most Tricks in 20 Seconds, and a brand new Musical Sit contest! Nothing to the latter contest - walk around, and when the music stops, command your dog to sit. Returning contests are Best Costume, Best Kisser, Best Voice, pie-eating contests, and biggest and smallest dog. Time for spring training?
Almost Home Project & Cat's Meow return with face painting, kids fun
The Almost Home Project and Cat's Meow will be at Poochapalooza again this year with a great selection of dog toys, treats, lifejackets, daypacks, frontpacks, backpacks and even some kitty toys. Cat's Meow will be offering face painting and a kids wheel of fortune. All money raised goes back into our low cost spay neuter programs.
