Poochapalooza needs vendors, sponsors for county's biggest dog event! Saturday, July 8, 2017 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Asbery Field at Totem Middle School, 4th & Alder, downtown Marysville[directions]
Our county fair for dogs is celebrating its 11th anniversary of giving dogs the day out they deserve. We're seeking pet-related vendors and sponsors for Snohomish County's biggest summer-time outdoor dog event celebrating pet lovers and their four-legged best friend.
This year’s event will be 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, July 8 at Asbery Field, 1605 7th St. in downtown Marysville. Poochapalooza, Snohomish County’s biggest dog festival, is sponsored by Marysville Dog Owners Group (M-DOG).
Poochapalooza is M-DOG's annual major fundraising event to support stewardship of the community premier 3-acre dog park, Strawberry Fields for Rover, other parks needs and pet advocacy. Our goal this year is to raise at least $5,000 to fund replacement of the deteriorating fence at the 10-year-old dog park. Sponsors and vendors will take us a long way toward reaching that goal, and putting on another memorable Poochapalooza.
We're excited to welcome this year's Event Tent Sponsor: Roy Robinson Chevrolet Subaru
