Sacramento's Ugliest Dog & Cutest Canine Pageant

DogtoberFest is a celebration of our four-pawed friends hosted by Mack Road Partnership featuring two entry categories: Ugliest Dog and Cutest Canine.

DogtoberFest is a Free Family & Canine-Friendly Event to attend, visit the vendors and exhibits, and to cheer for your favorite canine! There is a canine entry fee to participate in the pageant. 

And each entry can participate in the "Top Dog Costume Contest". This event is for family fun, sharing information on healthy pets and the importance of adopting animals from animal care services and organizations.
