Annual Events
DogtoberFest (DogtoberFest 2015 Save the Date)
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!

From Bobbin Doggin and PawCasso and Americanine Idol, the dogs have a great time. The dogs may even be
blessed (literally!). Folks are able to strut their mutt in the Parade of Dogs. The dogs and their owners can run the agility course and try flyball to their heart's content. The kid's play area includes face painting, clowns, Moon Walks, games, and prizes. Caricaturists draw both people and dogs. Vendors sell a wide range of wonderful and unique items all day. There is a variety of food coordinated by Doggone Good Diner.

DogtoberFest is a happy, fun day for the whole family, including the canine members of the family!
