What to Know for Dogtoberfest at Highlander Park

Bring your dog for a day of activities, including a doggie costume contest, a pet costume contest, a wiener dog race, pet vendors, live music and, of course, a beer garden.

Dunedin's dogs are taking over Highlander Park for Dogtoberfest on Saturday.

Bring the dogs and lawn chairs for a day of family-friendly activities, including a doggie costume contest, a pet costume contest, a wiener dog race, pet vendors, live music and, of course, a beer garden.
