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 park with your fur baby all weekend from 10 to 5! Then, on Sunday, join LI-DOG for the Old Westbury Gardens 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, October 28, 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 11:45 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™ at Old Westbury Gardens 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.

Please note: 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) 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.

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, picked up after.

Sponsored by the Nassau County SPCA and Long Island’s K98.3 radio station, admission is FREE, 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.

We hope to see you and your dogs–in costume!–at Nassau Barkfest on the 28th.
