February 29 - Leap Day

LEAP into the fun at DogFest Phoenix, 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 leap over to the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts Fountain Stage in Scottsdale, AZ on LEAP DAY, February 29 for the 6th annual DogFest Phoenix. 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.
