About this event

Now in our 23rd 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 the coveted Great PUPkin rosettes for the top pups!

RAIN DATE FOR THE EVENT IS SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31, SAME TIME AND LOCATION.

Only by preregistering can you guarantee your entry. ALL REGISTRATIONS MUST HAPPEN THROUGH EVENTBRITE! THERE IS NO WALK-UP REGISTRATION FOR THIS YEAR'S EVENT.

Registration CLOSES on OCTOBER 29th at 11:30PM!!!

And remember, your entry fee is a tax-deductible donation to Fort Greene PUPS, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization! Your receipt will serve for tax purposes. Thank you for your support!

After preregistering, you will receive a receipt, which you should print or bring on your phone to check in starting at 11:00 a.m. on the day of event.

IMPORTANT: If you do not check in by 11:30 a.m., your entry will be forfeited. Judging of all entrants begins at the bottom of the monument stairs at 12pm sharp!

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 beginning at 11:00 am, but BEFORE 11:30am. 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!

Once I preregister, 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.

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.

The PUPkin is FREE to attend - registration is ONLY required if your dog is competing in the contest!
