UPDATE: The Dogs of Ballard Dog Show, rescheduled for this evening at Ballard Commons Park, is canceled due to the likelihood of thunderstorms this evening. Weather was not on our side this year but we look forward to producing this event next summer! Thank you for your support and enthusiasm for this community event.

Eager canine contestants are lining up for the first ever


at Ballard Commons Park

Enjoy watching a variety of our neighborhood’s talented pooches compete in up to three judged categories:
Best In Show | Best Costume | Best Trick

Spectators please mark your calendars and come out to enjoy this free community event in the park (with or without a dog). The Seattle Barkery food truck will be serving up tasty treats for dogs and their human companions, as well as give-aways.

1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Prizes will be awarded in all three categories – Does your pooch have what it takes?

Online Registration is closed due to the large number of entries – but don’t let that stop you from enjoying the event with your pooch! We have treats, giveaways, photo contest and we need folks to cheer on our four-legged contestants.

There is the possibility that we will accept day-of registrations, if there are registration cancellations – so be sure to come to the event.

This event is sponsored by All the Best Pets | Sunset Hill Veterinary & Rehabilitation Center  | The Seattle Barkery | Visit Ballard | Ballard Alliance
and funded in part through a park programming grant from the City of Seattle – Office of Economic Development
