Seattleites live for sunny days—and we love including our canine friends. We’ve put together a list of the best dog-friendly Seattle summer events so you can enjoy the sunshine with your favorite pooch at your side.
Dog-friendly Seattle summer festivals
Downtown, Elliott Bay, Pier 55
It’s Dog Day on Elliott Bay with a barkin’ Blake Island bash. Start with a cruise on beautiful Elliott Bay. Follow that up with a visit to one of Seattle’s hidden treasures, Blake Island State Park, a 475-acre paradise for two- and four-legged creatures alike.
Belltown, 2322 1st Ave, Seattle, WA 98121
Every last Wednesday of the month, the astroturf comes down and Belltown Pub’s doors open to dogs. Your dog enjoys $1 off their treats—and you get tasty drink specials!
Issaquah Highland Bark Park
The American Cancer Society Bark For Life™ is a noncompetitive walk event for dogs and their owners to raise funds and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s fight against cancer.
Have a little “hair of the dog” on Sunday when the fest opens its Tasting Garden doors to canines. Plus, jog alongside your dog in the Fremont 5K or Street Scramble, and strut through the CityDog cover shoot model contest.
