FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Do something special for your four-legged fur ball, and head to Cotton Bowl Stadium at Fair Park for the free, seventh-annual Dog Bowl from 1 – 5 p.m. Sunday, April 7 when Dallas’ most historic football field will transform into a super-duper dog park for canines of all sizes to romp and run unleashed!
Enjoy pooch-pleasing fun including an animal-only agility course; a pet/owner look-alike contest; giveaways; exhibits; pooch portraits; canine crafts; live music; and more.
Talk to trainers, veterinarians and pet product vendors, and learn the latest tips and trends in the tail-wagging world.
The event will offer special pricing on vaccinations and microchipping. Also check out local dog clubs, rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations such as Operation Kindness and the Humane Society of Dallas County with adoptable dogs at the Woofstock “tail” gating zone outside the entrance gate of the Cotton Bowl.
Misting ponds and giant “dip and sip” splash bowls will keep canines cool and quenched, while humans will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments (including beer) and other concessions for sale.
Admission is free. The City of Dallas charges $10 for parking within the gates of Fair Park, or ride the DART Rail Green Line to the Fair Park Station. (Non-service animals are allowed on DART only if they are in crates.) Owners will be asked to observe all current City of Dallas Dog Park policies while at Fair Park.
