Dog Bowl at the Cotton Bowl, Dallas, TX, May 6, 2012

For the sixth year, fans of football and Fidos will huddle at the Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas as the Friends of Fair Park unleash a day of play that never fails to score a touchdown with dog devotees.


  • If you have a doggie double, sign up to compete in a pup/pet parent look-a-like contest.
  • You’ll be ‘bowl’ed over by the skilled Spots who will tackle the animal-only agility course.
  • If you’re looking to recruit a Rover for your home team, adorable adoptables from area rescue groups and other animal welfare organizations will be at the Woofstock “tail”gating zone outside the Cotton Bowl’s entrance gate.
  • Enjoy toe-tapping and tail-wagging tunes all afternoon.
  • Even if the temperature in Dallas is toasty during the event, canines can keep cool at misting ponds and giant “dip and sip” dog bowls.

Admission: Free (Parking is $10 within Fair Park’s gates, or ride DART Rail Green Line to the Fair Park Station.)

When: May 6, 2012 from 1 – 5 p.m.
