Annual Events
The region's first and largest dog and family festival! Join us at the Saint Francis Service Dogs facility (8232 Enon Drive, Roanoke, VA 24019) for a great day full of wags and woofs!

DogtoberFest is fun for the entire family, including the family dog! From Bobbin Doggin and PawCasso to Agility, the dogs have a great time! The dogs can visit the Doggy Day Spa to have their ears cleaned, their nails done, and doggy massage! Folks are able to strut their mutt in the Magic City Ford's Parade of Dogs. The kid's play area includes face painting, Star Wars characters, inflatables, games, and prizes. Vendors sell a wide range of wonderful and unique items all day. There will be live music, prize drawings all day, food trucks, micro beers, and wine tastings!
