Now in our 21st year in Fort Greene Park, and sponsored by Fort Greene PUPS, the Great PUPkin is Brooklyn's largest and most outrageous dog costume contest. Scads of dogs enter and ruthlessly compete for over-the-top prizes and the coveted Great PUPkin rosettes.

While 80 advance registrations slots have sold out in RECORD time, walk-up registration for a remaining 40 registrants will be available on the day of the event in Fort Greene Park will be available for a $5.00 donation, cash only, on a first-come, first-served basis, on the monument plaza. Day-of registration will start at 10:45am!

Judging of all entrants begins at the bottom of the monument stairs at 11:30 a.m. sharp!

RAIN DATE FOR THE EVENT IS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 27, SAME TIME AND LOCATION.

Note that if you were one of the 80 pups that pre-registered, remember to print or bring on your phone to check in by 11:00 a.m. on the day of event.

Great PUPkin FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Fort Greene Park is easily accessible by subway. The closest stations are Dekalb Avenue and Nevins Street. Street parking in Brooklyn is limited but available.

What if I have a "team costume" with multiple dogs? What is the entry fee?
Please purchase one ticket per dog entered. This is a fundraiser for Fort Greene PUPS, so it's going to a good cause! Fort Greene PUPS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Just write to info@fortgreenepups.org

Is my pre-registered registration/ticket transferrable?
Sure, as long as the entrant brings a printout of the registration receipt.

When should I arrive?
If you pre-registered, be checked in at the Eventbrite preregistration table BEFORE 11:00 am. Because slots for no-shows will be given to on-site registrants, we must ask that ALL preregistered entrants be checked in by 11:00 am. So arrive prior to that to check in, please! This will give you plenty of time for photos and costume wrangling, and you won't have to wait in a long line to check in!

If I preregistered, do I have to bring my printed Eventbrite ticket to the event?
Yes! Please bring a printout of your Eventbrite ticket or receipt to the event, or have it available on your phone. There will be a separate, clearly marked table for preregistrants.

What if I pre-registered but I'm late?
We are sorry, but due to the amount of people wanting to enter the contest on-site, if you pre-regisered by have not checked in by 11:00 a.m., your slot will be forfeited. So please be sure to check in at the preregistration table before 11:00 a.m.!

What is the refund policy?
No refunds, sorry! Consider it a donation to Fort Greene PUPS if you cannot make it on the day of the contest.
