Celebrating WNY's furry friends

There are many festivals and events throughout Western New York for you and your family members each summer, but what about the other important member - your family dog? The Northtown Subaru Dog Days of Kenmore is a fun, free event for canines and their people; a celebration of dogs and the enjoyment and interest they bring to our lives! The Dog Days excitement includes dog sports, contests with prizes, education and training, dog vendors and activities, treats for humans and canines, and much more! Well socialized, friendly dogs are welcome at the event; water and shade will be provided. Watch the video of past years events. Also, check out some photos right here.

2017 marks the seventh year for the Dog Days of Kenmore! Each year the volunteers of the Kenmore Village Improvement Society (KVIS) work to make this event very special. We strive to showcase and support area rescue groups, animal care services, and dog related vendors. We also make sure that you and your dog enjoy the party with fun music and food trucks serving some of WNY's favorite foods.

About Dog Days of Kenmore

The Kenmore Village Improvement Society has organized the Northtown Subaru Dog Days of Kenmore because Kenmore loves dogs and we know that the whole of Western New York joins us in this! Thousands of dogs live here, from little white Bichons to long-legged Dobermans and many four-legged friends of mixed pedigree. We love and cherish our time with our furry friends and want to celebrate and acknowledge the abiding relationship we humans have with them. Watch the video of the 2011 event. Also, check out some photos from last year's event right here.

The KVIS strives to improve our community -what better way could we help do this than by throwing a party for these important and valued members of our community? You are warmly invited to come to the Dog Days, grab a freshly baked biscuit for your dog, a concession hotdog for you, visit the vendors, enter a contest or two, create a zoetrope, experience an agility demonstration, and enjoy the party! For more information about all the other interesting KVIS events, initiatives, and campaigns check out our website.
