Barktoberfest 2013

Barktoberfest is Back!
Saturday, Sept 28th 2013
1-6 pm
adjacent to Estabrook Park Beer Garden
Estabrook Park
4400 N. Estabrook Dr.

Free admission!!!

Estabrook Park not only plays home to Milwaukee’s new beer garden but also to one of Milwaukee’s favorite off-leash dog exercise areas making it the perfect location to host Barktoberfest. Pack your picnic basket and gather your pooch, family and friends in the spirit of Munich’s Hofbräuhaus. Experience Gemütlichkeit at Estabrook Park with your dog!

Join Residents for Off-leash Milwaukee Parks (ROMP) for an afternoon of tail-waggin’ fun including fun new games and contests to enjoy with your pooch, and pet-related information booths, and much more to be announced in the coming weeks!

LIVE music, strolling minstrels, and food and libations from the Beer Garden will bring everyone in to the Octoberfest mood.

Barktoberfest has something for every dog. We can’t wait to share more details with you as the time gets closer!

Things you need to know about Barktoberfest:

Non-alcholic carry-in of beverages and picnic food is allowed.
Bring your own beer mug, rent one from the beer garden ($6), or buy a special commemorative mug from ROMP ($5). Purchase a commemorative mug and receive $1 off beer from Beer Garden!
Dogs must be on leash during the event, but the off-leash dog is just around the corner from the event if you pooch needs some run-time.

    Lucy and I did not specifically meet anyone from this group but we did see a ton of people with little dogs and we talked to a bunch of people. Who knows, it could have been someone from the meetup and we just didn't realize it. Regardless, without this group I would never have known about the event and it was great for Lucy. She is hesitant with strangers and with dogs but she did great! If anyone remembers talking to us give me a poke ;). Lucy was the tiny 3 lb black and white Miki. We were there between 1 and 2:30.

      Sorry Tori, maybe as a group we could set up a specific time and location (example specific booth) but I know that from the past people rsvp and do not show up - we may need to put in the discussion or comments ahead of time. I did not get there till 1:30 and stay till 4:30.

    Would like to attend but will be out of town. Have a Jack Russell Terrier & Mini Dachshund & big dog play never works out. Will there be other outings?

    Just found out at Wagfest that one of my dogs loves lure coursing. We will do it again at this event. I am also attending Sturgeon Fest in the morning and early afternoon, so will be arriving later in the day.
