Join the fun at DogFest Orlando, a family- and dog-friendly community event that brings dog lovers together for a cause. Whether you have a dog or simply love them, spend the day at DogFest and celebrate our canine friends and heroes that bring joy to our lives. All funds raised benefit Canine Companions for Independence and their mission of matching assistance dogs with children, adults and veterans with disabilities, free of charge. These expertly trained assistance dogs make a profound impact through the jobs they do like opening doors, picking up dropped items, alerting to sounds and much more.

Gather your friends, family and dogs and head to Central Park in Winter Park, FL on May 16, 2020 for the 6th annual DogFest Orlando. Everyone is invited to join us for a day of fun, festivities, inspiring speakers, dog demonstrations, music, food and more! Registration is free. Fundraising is encouraged.

Make your sponsorship dollars go twice as far! Thanks to a generous donation from the DPH Fund, all sponsorship levels $250 and above will be matched up to $25,000.  There are engaging sponsorship opportunities at every level, all of which demonstrate a company’s or organization’s desire to be part of a family-friendly, dog-friendly and completely accessible event that celebrates community, camaraderie and the human-canine bond. We promise that your sponsorship will be “the best bark for your buck,’ but more importantly will transform lives.

So don’t miss out on DogFest. Join the fun and give a dog a job.
