Description

Dakin Humane Society’s Barks & Brews, will return to Fort Hill Brewery in Easthampton, MA on Sunday, June 24, 2018 from 1:00pm – 5:00pm, with a special VIP hour starting at 12:00pm. This event is for guests ages 21+.

In 2017, this event sold out in just two weeks, bringing in more than $25,000 in support of Dakin’s animals in need. This year, Fort Hill Brewery has opened its new addition and patio, creating an event space perfectly match for the areas rustic charm and Dakin’s fundraising goal of $35,000.

Dogs will enjoy a variety of activities, including the Splash Zone by North King Animal Clinic, nail trimming by Fur’s A Flyin’ Pet Grooming and Day Camp, baths by HydroDog, photobooth family portraits by The Good Dog Spot, treats by Paw Street Barkery, and the socialization of many butts to sniff. Once friends are made, the more competitive canines may find themselves ears deep in a bowl of hot dogs at their chance to win the hot dog eating contest.

General tickets for humans include a complimentary beer from Fort Hill Brewery and free parking. Delicious eats will be available for purchase from local food trucks including Holyoke Hummus and KIX 100.9 will join the festivities with Amanda Jo and Mike Salois entertaining the crowd with country tunes. A special VIP hour will charm guests with a Barks & Brews t-shirt, a complimentary beer, VIP parking, and appetizers. The VIP hour begins at 12:00pm.

Tickets are $25 for general admission (1:00pm – 5:00pm) and $50 for VIP admission (12:00pm). All dogs are complimentary.

Proceeds from the event directly support Dakin Humane Society’s mission to deliver effective, innovative services that improve the lives of animals in need and the people who care about them.
