LI-DOG Pack Walk™ at Old Westbury Gardens!
New Date: Sun., Nov. 3rd, Noon to 1PM
Old Westbury Gardens
71 Old Westbury Rd., Old Westbury, NY
Please note: Because of predictions for heavy rain on Sun., Oct. 27th, the Old Westbury Gardens Fall Dog Festival and the LI-DOG Pack WalkTM have been rescheduled to Sun., Nov. 3rd. The times remain the same. We hope to see you then!
Crisp fall air, pumpkin spice, apple cider, Halloween costumes—celebrate all the fun of autumn with Fido during Dog Days at Old Westbury Gardens!
Enjoy the gardens with your fur baby all weekend from 10 to 5! Then, on Sunday, Nov. 3rd, 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, Nov. 3rd, we will lead an LI-DOG Pack Walk™—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 11:30 a.m. to sign in. As a Halloween treat, Goody Bags generously donated by West Hills Animal Hospital & Emergency Center will be given to the first 50 people who sign in for the Pack Walk! Thank you, West Hills Animal Hospital, for your generous donation for our guests!
Registrants for the Pack Walk will also have the opportunity to donate $5 to LI-DOG for a chance to win a raffle basket that promises yummy treats for your pup! Proceeds from the raffle support LI-DOG’s work to open local parks and beaches to our four-legged family members.
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.
Dogs must be on-leash at all times, please no RETRACTABLE leashes, and are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds. Please also keep them from walking on the flowers.
OWG admission fees are $12 for adults; $10 for seniors (over 62) or students with valid ID and $7 for children ages 7-17. OWG members, children 6 and under, and four-legged visitors are free! OWG accepts AMEX, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover at the admissions booth, gift shop, and café.
