MKE IT Downtown

Holiday Photo Fundraiser for MKE Dog Park: Dec. 18

December 13, 2021 /   dog holiday photo op

Looking for the perfect holiday photo of you and your pup to share with family and friends this festive season? The MKE Dog Park is hosting their very own holiday photo shoot at Catalano Square!

Bring your dog to Catalano Square on Saturday, December 18 from noon to 3pm to capture the spirit of the season at the Historic Third Ward Christmas Tree! You and your pal will have your picture taken by a photographer with a stunning 40-foot Christmas tree as your backdrop. Holiday props and adornments will also be available to add extra cheer to your photograph. Photos will be available for download soon after your session, so that you can share with friends and family just in time for the holidays. No reservations are required for this event.

Be sure to grab a treat for you and your pup while you’re there too. Pete's Pops will be selling Pup Pops for the pooches and Interval will provide warm drinks for all the dog parents to purchase.

A minimum donation of $10 is requested for this pop-up photo op. All proceeds from this event will go toward making the MKE Dog Park a reality and will be accepted as cash and through the Venmo app.

The MKE Dog park is a dynamic 12,000-square-foot, dog-friendly space that will transform the west bank of the Milwaukee River on N. Plankinton Avenue and W. Clybourn Street into Downtown Milwaukee’s first public dog park. Learn more about the project at and follow the project at @MKEDogPark.
