Dog Days of Summer Festival in downtown Kent Ohio

Please make plans now to join us on

Saturday, August 17, 2019,
11:00 to 4:00 for
The Dog Days of Summer.

Downtown Kent at Hometown Bank Plaza will be filled with
pet-related vendors, veterinarians, adoption groups, live music, food trucks and Thirsty Dog beer! Join WOIO Channel 19 meteorologist Samantha Roberts and her dog, Doppler, and the voice of the Kent State Golden Flashes, Jeff Kurtz in celebrating the dogs in our lives.

As always, you can expect a dog parade and dog contests – including Best Dressed, Biggest, Smallest, and new this year Furthest-Traveled.

In 2018, Dog Days raised more than $14,000 for the Trust to support its mission to aid animal causes in Portage County.
