What we're about

Capital Corgi Club is for all corgis and the humans who love them in the greater Washington metro area. Whether you have one corgi, two corgis or are considering adding a corgi to your family, you and your family are welcome to join us for breed play groups and other corgi related fun. These events are for the dogs. Please RSVP the number of Corgis (not humans) attending unless otherwise noted on the event RSVP.

If you see an event with 12:00 AM that is not a mistake. I create events with midnight start time as a placeholder slot pending exact details to ensure the event shows up on the calendar in the correct order. Please be patient with me updating the site. In 2019 I will be trying out limiting the RSVP start date to less than 30 days out for most events to try to avoid folks signing up weeks in advance, forgetting to update, and then no-showing.

I do my best to avoid setting up events when other corgi groups have stuff the same day in the same general area to avoid splitting up attendance. If you have an event you would like to publicize please message me ideally with all the details I need to repost or the link to your event page. I will only repost events where corgis can attend.

We have no permanent home so we bounce from location to location. Please check upcoming meetups for our next gathering's location, time and date. I will try to put any entrance fee or venue rules when I learn of them myself. Please always be prepared to provide proof of vaccinations etc when attending an indoor venue event just in case it is required. For puppy safety, no puppy under the age of 16 weeks should attend events as they need to receive last shots at roughly that time. Aggressive dogs (or humans) will be banned by group consensus.

BarkSocial - Baltimore

Needs a location

❤️‍🔥Corgi & Honorary Corgi Meetup❤️‍🔥 Koa is turning 3, and we would love nothing more than meeting up with friends near and far! The meetup will be hosted at @bark_social on Saturday 10/1 10am-12pm. In lieu of gifts we are collecting donations to benefit House With a Heart Pet Sanctuary (@housewithaheart) so they can continue their wonderful mission to give the best life to senior and terminally ill pets.

For those who have never been to @bark_social_baltimore you are in for a great treat!! They are a dog park and beer garden (cafe) all rolled into one, and come fully staffed with dog sitters. Why not enjoy meeting the human counterparts to your furkids, all the while helping a local charity? We will raffle off door prizes for bringing monetary or wishlist donations goods too. (To get a raffle ticket, just bring proof of your online wish list purchase for House With A Heart, or bring a check for a donation. Monetary donations are always appreciated since they give out grants to area rescues. Each location will have a grand prize!)

PLACEHOLDER John Brown Raid Harpers Ferry

Needs a location

This is a relatively difficult climb for those out of shape but the views at the top are fantastic.

TBD if Maryland Heights or Weaverton Cliffs for 2022

CALENDAR PLACEHOLDER - PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR DETAILS
***************2021 info **************

Please google Weverton Cliffs Parking Lot for the coordinates and plan to arrive early to get parking there as it is a very small lot. The trail is shaded the whole way but please bring water for your corgi as it is hotter than the hottest heat wave in Wales.

Alternative parking is at the Brunswick MARC station lot which is a much longer route that adds a 4 mile walk along the C&O canal (making this around 10 miles roundtrip).

This is a popular overlook so you should have no trouble asking folks if you are on the right trail if you can't find me. The trail itself is a little hard to find from the Canal if you don't know where to turn off.
