On Saturday, February 3, Welleby Park in Sunrise will be transformed into a haven for dogs and their human companions as the city hosts its much-anticipated annual Woofstock event.

Organized by the City of Sunrise, the event is a celebration of dogs, dog lovers, and the special bond they share.

Woofstock, set to take place at Pawgrass at Welleby Park, located at 11100 NW 44 Street, promises a day filled with fun and furry antics.

The event, open to the public and free of charge, welcomes all – whether they own a dog or not. The gates open for a three-hour extravaganza of dog-centered activities starting at 10:30 a.m.

The first 500 dogs through the gates receive a special “doggie bag” filled with treats, making an early arrival a must for pet owners. But the fun doesn’t stop there. Woofstock boasts a packed schedule featuring entertainment, demonstrations, and contests designed to showcase the talents and quirks of our canine friends.

The Air K9z Frisbee Show, scheduled for 10:30 a.m. and again at noon, is expected to be a crowd-pleaser with its display of high-flying, disc-catching dogs.

Costume contests at 11:00 a.m., including categories like ‘Most Creative’ and ‘Pet/Owner Look-alike,’ will bring smiles, while the Wiener Dog Races at 11:30 a.m. promise a spectacle of pint-sized speed.

For those interested in the more serious side of canine capabilities, the Sunrise Police Department’s K9 unit will present a demonstration at 12:30 p.m., showcasing the skills and training of these remarkable working dogs.

Various rescue groups will be on-site, offering pets for adoption for those looking to expand their family with a new four-legged member.

Attendees are reminded that all dogs must have a current rabies tag for admittance, and for safety reasons, retractable leashes are not permitted. Additionally, puppies and dogs too old or young to have the rabies vaccine are not allowed to ensure the safety and well-being of all attendees.
