Cardiff 101 Main Street is proud to partner with the City of Encinitas to present the 12th Annual Cardiff Dog Days of Summer. This FREE event features over 200 dog-related vendors and rescue groups, pet adoptions, live music, dog contests, kids activities, beer & wine garden, food trucks and more!
New this year, the event will be held at the Encinitas Community Park next to the Maggie Houlihan Dog Park and will feature a carefully curated “Maker’s Market Row” where you can find quality handmade goods and connect with local artisans. The event will also feature a “Rescue Row” and Pet Health Expo.
We’re excited to expand our dog contest categories again at this year’s event. Does your dog like to strut its stuff? Enter one of 6 categories: Cutest Puppy, Best Looking Big Dog, Best Looking Small Dog, Best Trick, Best Dressed and Dog/Owner Look-A-Like. Compete to take home a ribbon for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place and a goodie bag of cool prizes. Registration is the day of the event from 11:45am-12:15pm $5 cash per entry.
