One of our favorite events of the year is just around the corner! The 13th annual Barcstoberfest takes place October 28th from 9:30am – 2:00pm, and Charm City Run’s “Ready, Set…Sniff! 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk” will launch the day’s activities at 9:00am sharp (with packet pickup starting at 7:30am). We invite you to stop in and say “hi” at our tent in the vendor village, and grab a giveaway before you head out!

BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter) largest fundraiser of the year, this event raised over $250,000 last year and we’re hoping to shatter that record this time around. All funds received go directly to care for the 12,000+ animals that enter the charitable organization’s doors each year. This year’s festival includes a pet-friendly beer/wine garden, additional food trucks, a variety of live entertainment, and a practically endless array of pet service(s) and merchandise businesses. Downward Dog Yoga will also be on site for a class starting at 11:00am. Registration starts at 10:30am and is only $10, so be sure to bring Fido along so you can both get your “stretch on” together! Feel free to leave your yoga mat/towel behind too, as they make great beds for the shelter’s pets.
