‘Dogtoberfest’ This Weekend at Port City to Benefit Animal Welfare League

If you’ve ever thought “I want to drink beer outdoors, with other people, but I also want to hang out with my dog,” Port City has the event for you.

Dogtoberfest, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 19, is a free event planned in the parking lot of Port City Brewing Company’s brewery at 3950 Wheeler Avenue.

“It’s an all-day event, so from about 12-8 p.m. the whole parking lot will be filled with non-profits that are canine or animal-focused,” Emma Quinn, events and marketing manager for Port City. “A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.”

The event is a collaboration with Frolick Dogs, a “canine sports club” at 3208 Colvin Street.

According to the Facebook post for the event:

This event will be held in our parking lot outside of the brewery with activities throughout the day for dogs as well as a dog adoption (1-3 p.m.), bulldog kissing booth, agility course, and local organizations that support our animal friends! Also, Dog Trivia will be held from 3-5 p.m. outside so dog friends can attend and Heavenly Santa will be there for dogs to get their holiday photos.

In addition to food trucks for humans, a truck called Woofbowl with food for dogs will be set up at the event, the post said.
