Bark in the Park is Chicago’s oldest dog-friendly party for the whole family! Currently celebrating its 25th year, Bark in the Park begins with a 2.5 mile walk along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront. The event is followed by the best dog party in town with food, beverages, activities, and dog-friendly demonstrations. Bark in the Park welcomes 1,500 dog parents, canine companions, and people who want to help animals in need.
Bark in the Park is held on the southeast corner outside of Soldier Field at The Stadium Green—just steps from the lake. After the walk guests can participate in a variety of fun activities including: dog-friendly demonstrations, canine agility courses, product samples from small business sponsors, dog massages, pawdicures, caricature drawings, arts and crafts, family-friendly activities, souvenir photos, and a 50/50 cash raffle.
