Presented by ADID and Georgia’s Own Credit Union, Doggy Con features a pet parade and costume contest, plus
- a vendor village of dog-centric goods and activities
- a yappy hour social with a Steady Hand Beer Co. cash bar
- plenty of pup culture
Join us in paying homage to Dragon Con, one of the world’s largest pop culture conventions, while competing for drool-worthy prizes. From Harry Pawter to BatDog and Robin, there’s room for everyone at Doggy Con.
Prizes (from Dragon Con, Biscuits and Belly Rubs, Whole Dog Market, The Clean Dog, Big Daddy Biscuits, and more) will be awarded in three categories: Best in Show, Best Doggie/Owner “Con-bo,” and Best Cosplay Costume.
Registration is required to participate in the Doggy Con costume contest. Register for $10 by August 15 or register onsite at the event for $15. All funds raised go directly back to support Woodruff Park’s free community programs. Thanks to Georgia's Own Credit Union's "85 Acts of Kindness" initiative, the first 85 to register will receive exclusive Doggy Con swag!
If you simply want to attend as a spectator, admission is free!
Vendor and Nonprofit Village lineup: Taylor's Treats Fur Pets, JJ Parrot LLC, Huck and Harbor, Mint Creative Co., Atlanta Humane Society, Lifeline Animal Project, Grady Furlunteers
