This year’s festival promises a great time for dogs and the people they own. Enjoy live performances, food and product vendors, contests and much more!
Enter Your Dog in the Top Dog Photo Contest!
Entry period: March 1-31
All entries much include a short essay question that asks you to describe why your dog is the “Top Dog.” Entries received without the processed entry fee will not be considered. Limit one entry per dog. Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation employees and Bark in the Park event sponsors are ineligible for the contest. All entries will be judged by an independent panel based on the following criteria: cleverness, originality and the written essay. Three finalists will be selected for online voting April 10-25.
The Top Dog winner will be announced at Bark in the Park and will receive a year’s supply of dog food from Purina®. 2017 Top Dogs Photos
