Barks & Recreation
Bring Your Dog for a Day of Fun
Celebrate everything you love about Bend: beer, dogs and the outdoors! The Barks & Recreation event, a fundraiser for the Bend Spay+Neuter Project, combines hilarious dog contests, local vendors, live music, games, and a good time for the dog-loving community of Bend, Oregon. There will be fun contests for your dog, including a K-9 pie eating contest, best voice, owner-dog lookalike, best hair, best kisser, best trick, best smile, and more. The dog-friendly beer tent will feature corn hole, beer pong and of course, delicious beer. The Bend Spay+Neuter Project provides free and affordable programs like Hope Pet Food Bank, wellness clinic, and assistance with spay or neuter. Their mission is to provide affordable, preventative veterinary care for cats and dogs at risk of suffering in order to create a more humane community.
