The 2019 Dog Festival and Show at the Planting Fields Arboretum is an opportunity to enjoy a 3-day weekend of family friendly activities in a beautiful setting. In addition to watching hundreds of dogs compete in a variety of dog sports, visitors and their dogs can get in on the action at AKC’s My Dog Can Do That, where participants can try out agility and obstacle courses or test their water skills at Dock Diving in a 25,000-gallon tank!
You can also do some shopping for the perfect present for your dog or a dog lover in your life, peruse a flea market, and join a “Nautical Long Island” themed dog costume contest on Sunday. With raffles and food for sale, face painting for the kids, and canine activities, this event is great for the whole family! Bring a lawn chair and your dog and be ready to have some fun!
The Arboretum itself is lovely in the spring and well worth the visit! Check out the Planting Fields website for more information about this Long Island treasure! The $20.00 admission fee per car includes the $8.00 admission to the Arboretum.
