Join the fun at DogFest Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville Beach on March 28, 2020 for the 7th annual DogFest Jacksonville. 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.

DogFest Jacksonville 2019 was a blast! Activities included: a live band, dog agility course, Kids Zone with bounce houses, face painting, free caricatures, over 60 vendors and so much more. DogFest 2020 will be even bigger and better than 2019; you won't want to miss this special paw-ty!

Gather your friends, start a team and get ready to fundraise!
Make your donations go twice as far! Thanks to the generous donations from Providence Homes, the first 20 DogFest TEAMS that raise $250 or more will receive a match of $250 towards your team goal.

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