Doggy Con

This event has passed.

Two weeks before Dragon Con enlivens Downtown Atlanta, Woodruff Park hosts an opportunity for metro-Atlantans and their four-legged friends to get in on the cosplay fun.

Presented by Georgia’s Own Credit Union, Doggy Con features a pet parade and costume contest, a vendor village of dog-centric goods and activities, a yappy hour social with a Steady Hand Beer Co. cash bar, and plenty of pup culture. Doggy Con will be held on Woodruff Park’s Main Lawn at 91 Peachtree St NW on Saturday, August 17 from 10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m.

Atlantans are invited to pay homage to one of the world’s largest pop culture conventions while competing for drool-worthy prizes. From Harry Pawter to BatDog and Robin, there’s room for everyone at Doggy Con.

Prizes will be awarded in three categories: Best in Show, Best Doggie/Owner “Con-bo,” and Best Cosplay Costume.

Registration is required to participate in the Doggy Con costume contest. Register for $10 by August 15 or register onsite at the event for $15. All funds raised go directly back to supporting Woodruff Park’s free community programs. For those who wish to attend as a spectator, admission is free.
