The Frankenmuth Dog Bowl is the ultimutt in furiffic fun in Michigan! Held every Memorial Day Weekend in Frankenmuth, Michigan, this high energy dog event is a favorite among kids and adults! We had one heck of a good time!
If you are having a ruff week and need to get out of the paw-ffice, the Frankenmuth Dog Bowl is the ULTIMUTT way to cheer you up! (Did you see what I did there?!)
So plan your Michigan vacation or traveling Michigan aventures around this happy, family friendly event in Frankenmuth!
WELL< It's ONLY The world’s largest Olympic-style festival for dogs! It includes dock and disc dog competitions, sheep herding demos, the super cute wiener dog races, Rock N Roll K9's shows, agility competitions, the super fun pet costume parade and so much more!
Don't miss the competitive hot air balloon event called the "Balloons over Bavarian Inn." It's usually around 9:00 p.m. (check their website for details) with nightly balloon glow events at the River Place Shops field. The majestic balloon launches begin Friday night and occur early morning and later evenings until Monday morning (weather permitting).
Frankenmuth River Place Shops, 925 South Main Street, Frankenmuth, MI.
The Dog Bowl is located right behind the River Place Shops, near the Bavarian Belle Riverboat.
The great thing is that all parking is free and relatively abundant. This year we parked behind the Bavarian Inn in a huge open grassy lot. If you want to park in the River Place Shops lot, get there early!
Seriously, there were so many rebarkable dogs there, it will blow your mind! (I just can't stop with the doggie, puns...) We petted so many furry friends, met some friendly people, shopped and at some famous chicken!
Lots of shops have dog related gifts, shirts, toys and doggie treats. Enjoy a Zehnder's or Bavarian Inn famous chicken dinner, sample chocolates and cheese, walk over the famous covered bridge and just enjoy the beauty of the day!
