Summer is finally here and you’ll probably be spending a lot more time outside and away from home. But that doesn’t mean the dogs need to be left at home!
The Winnipeg Fringe Festival – July 17 to 28
Dogs aren’t welcome to indoor venues (yet!) but no one’s telling you your pooch can’t march around Old Market Square. Street performers and musicians put on free shows all day and into the evening. With food vendors surrounding the grassy seating area and port-a-potties in behind your dog won’t have to be left alone at all.
Assiniboine Park – June 1 to August 26
A lot goes on at Assiniboine Park and the pups are free to join! The 2013 Red River Co-op Summer Entertainment Series at Assiniboine Park is already underway with music and ballet performances at the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden and Lyric Theatre. On Friday evening cuddle up with your dog and take in a movie at the Lyric Theatre. Pack yourself some popcorn and her a few treats and chew toys to keep everyone happy.
Manyfest – September 6 to 8
Manyfest takes place on Broadway and is Winnipeg’s largest downtown festival. This year’s events haven’t been announced, but last year there was a movie night, farmer’s and artisan’s market and a parade down the street where people held candles, glow sticks and other bright items called Lights on Broadway. Your pup is welcome to join in this outdoor festival and would look spectacular with a glow stick collar!
There are many dog-friendly events and spaces in summer. Where will you be heading with your dogs?
