2019 Cardiff Dog Days of Summer Festival
August 11th in Encinitas
Hey dogs! Cardiff (a.k.a. Cardiff by the Sea) has a perfect solution for you and your weary owner if the summer doldrums hit in August.
The 14th annual Cardiff Dog Days of Summer Festival takes place in less than 3 weeks. This could be every area pooch’s dream summer event. Over the years the Cardiff Dog Days of Summer Festival has become the largest and most popular canine-focused event in the San Diego area!
The Dog Days of Summer Festival takes place at the Encinitas Community Park adjacent to the Maggie Houlihan Dog Park, Sunday August 11th from 10 am until 5:00 pm.
Encinitas Community Park is located at 425 Santa Fe Drive, a mile east of Swami’s Beach.
Last year over 5000 attended (not sure if that includes the doggies or not) and you can expect a pretty good crowd again this year. The Festival is sponsored by the Cardiff 101 Main Street Association with multiple other sponsors, too!
The Dog Days of Summer Festival includes over 100 vendors featuring dog products and services, live music, activities for kids, food trucks, a beer garden, dog contests, “Rescue Row” presented by the Rancho Coastal Humane Society (all proceeds benefit the organization and 16 dogs were adopted last year), a “Makers Market Row” featuring hand-made products from 30 local artisans, and an agility course created by Kamp Kanine.
The Pet Health Expo will offer a range of pet services including micro-chipping, pet licensing, vaccinations and more.
Just imagine hours of fun for you and your pooch, or come and enjoy all the festivities; this could be a great opportunity to adopt a dog if you are so inclined at the Rescue Row!!
Registration for the Dog Contests is from 9:45 until 10:15 – registration is limited. The Blessing of the Dogs is at 10:15 and the 30-minute contests begin at 10:30.
There are six categories so you are sure to find the one that best fits your fur friend - Cutest Puppy, Best Looking Big Dog, Best Looking Small Dog, Best Looking Medium Dog, Best Trick, and Best Dressed. The entry fee is $10 (cash) or $12 credit/debit, and All contestants will get a free photo at the photo booth.
