Honorary Co-Chairs: Maria and Matt Wieters

Join us for our annual BARCStober Fest, featuring “Ready, Set, Sniff” 5 K run, on October 20th 2012. The fun begins at 11 am in Patterson Park near the Pagoda. BARCStober Fest benefits over 12,000 homeless animals that come to BARCS each year.

BARCStober Fest includes: pet contests (including costume), pet health and welfare specialists, pet blessings, pet micro-chipping, stage entertainment, food vendors, local artists, silent auction, raffle, other area animal rescues and so much more!

This year BARCStober Fest, in partnership with Charm City Run, will be featuring its first Ready…Set…Sniff 5 K Run OR Walk with your 4 legged friends around Baltimore’s Patterson Park. The Run/Walk ends right at the start of the festival so you and your fur kids and human family can enjoy a day of fun together!
