Every Dog Has Its Day at Fido’s Festival USA
The sixth annual Fido’s Festival USA happens September 7 and 8 at the Salem County Fairgrounds, in Woodstown. Lovable family dogs of all breeds and mixes are invited to join their family companions for this celebration. The festival promises dog-friendly activities, as well as vendors with pet-related products and about 20 area rescues and shelters with adoptable dogs on-site.
The National Canine Cancer Foundation will host Lure for a Cure, giving canine participants the chance to complete a lure-racing course. Because one in three dogs suffers with cancer, the nonprofit is dedicated to obtaining contributions to directly fund research that will eliminate the prevalence of cancer in dogs.
Other spectacles include dock diving by the Ultimate Air Dogs and Frisbee tricks by the World Famous Disc-Connected K9s Frisbee Dogs. The agility fields will also host a number activities in which all dogs can participate. The food court will be stocked with options for everyone, including the pups.
Cost: single day—advance, $7, at the gate, $10; weekend (advance, online only), $12. Overnight tent or camper stays, $45 per adult couple; kids under 12 and dogs, free. Parking is free. Location: 735 Rte. 40, Woodstown. For more information, call 856-854-FIDO or visit FidosFestivalUsa.com.
