Four-Legged Friends Rejoice: We’re Unleashing Our New Barking Lot!

One of our goals at the DC VegFest is to create a family-friendly event that has something fun for everyone, including our furry four-legged friends. That’s why we’re excited to introduce our new Barking Lot!

Our first-ever Barking Lot will offer a festive spot for your canine companions to lap up some water (and some love), make a new friends, and grab a quick snack before going back out to enjoy the rest of the festival. This shaded area will have kiddie pools, toys, some extra leashes, doggie bags, and food provided by our very special Barking Lot sponsor: V-Dog, a California-based all-vegan dog food company.

Looking to expand your family with a furry addition? We can help with that, too! There will be adorable adoptable dogs from local animal shelters and rescues organization who will be on the lookout for a loving, forever home – so be prepared to get your heart stolen!

See you soon at the DC VegFest!


NOTE: The DC VegFest is dedicating the Barking Lot in loving memory of V-Dog’s founder, David Middlesworth. Thank you, David, for being an incredible friend to all animals.
