Crisp fall air, pumpkin flavors, Halloween costumes—celebrate all the fun of autumn with Fido during Dog Days at Old Westbury Gardens. Enjoy the park with your fur baby all weekend from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.! Then, on Sunday, join LI-DOG for the Fall Dog Festival, which runs from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. There will be doggie vendors, rescue groups, animal advocacy organizations, and fun activities including a big costume contest and parade starting at 3:00 pm (register by 2:00 pm).

At Noon on Sunday, we will lead an LI-DOG Pack WalkTM—a group on-leash dog walk–through the grounds of the estate. Please be at our table or by the LI-DOG Pack Walk banner by 11:45 a.m. to sign in. The Walk will take 45-60 minutes and is almost all on flat ground. There are opportunities to shorten the walk as well. Make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must!–and bring your camera as there are many beautiful photo opportunities on the grounds.

Registrants for the LI-DOG Pack Walk™ will have the opportunity to donate $5 to LI-DOG for a chance to win a raffle basket full of doggie toys and treats. If you double your donation, you more than double your chances to win, as a $10 donation gets you four tickets! Proceeds from the raffle support LI-DOG’s work to open local parks and beaches to our four-legged family members.

Dogs must be on-leash at all times when visiting the gardens and are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds.

OWG admission fees are $12 for adults; $10 for seniors (over 62) and $7 for children ages 7-17. OWG members, children 6 and under, and four-legged visitors are free!
