Everyone, including our canine companions, loves a good Halloween party! Nassau Barkfest is Long Island’s largest, free spook-tacular party, parade and costume contest for dogs and their people!

Dress up your furry friend in his or her Halloween finest — silly, fancy, or scary — and join the parade. Costume judging will begin at 2:30 pm and prizes will be awarded.

LI-DOG, rescue groups and other animal-friendly organizations will be there to help celebrate. All pets must be on a leash and, as always, please be vigilant about cleaning up after your pet!

This event is sponsored by the Nassau County SPCA and Long Island’s K98.3 radio station. As noted there is no charge for admission, but all participants are asked to bring a donation of pet food for families who are facing difficult financial times and need help feeding their pets. Food donations will be collected at the entrances.

The event is outdoors, but social distancing and appropriate mask protocols are encouraged.
