Spring & Summer Activities to Enjoy With Your Furry Friends!

May 5, 2022 /   wine

Sun’s out, pups out here in downtown! Exciting dog happenings, happening all summer long. Be sure to bark your calendars! 

Wine & Wag Around The Ward - Catalano Square

Head over to the Historic Third Ward on Sunday, May 22nd from 1:00pm to 4:00pm for a day full of wags & wine! While your pups have a chance to run and play, you’ll have a chance to taste specialty, curated wine, by flight or glass, visit a variety of vendors, and have the opportunity to grab food from food trucks! Best of all, proceeds from t-shirt and wine sales will directly benefit the MKE Dog Park project! 

Bark at the Park - American Family Field 

Bark your calendars for Tuesday, June 7th and bring your furry crew to a ball game! Each special ticket package allows you to bring your dog into the park and receive a special Brewer’s dog toy. Part of the proceeds will benefit the Wisconsin Humane Society and find us in the concourse supporting the MKE Dog Park Project! To buy your tickets, click here

MKE Dog Park Photo Fundraiser - Auntie Jennie’s Barkery

Who doesn’t love a good photo opportunity with you and your pup? Saturday, July 23rd, join us in support of MKE Dog Park, to take adorable pictures with your pup. This summer themed photo shoot will be located at  Auntie Jennie’s Barkery in downtown Greenfield - known for their homemade, gluten-free dog treats, as well as product from small, locally owned dog retailers. A small $10 minimum donation will get you a 4x6 printed photo! 

WagWag Wednesday’s - Drink Wisconsinbly Pub

Be on the lookout for our next upcoming Wag Wednesday hosted at Drink Wisconsinbly Pub on June 22nd. From 5:00pm - 9:00pm (paw-zed for the month of May for the Bucks playoff run), 10% of all proceeds during Yappy Hour will directly benefit making the MKE Dog Park a reality - cheers to that! Our last Wag Wednesday on April 13th was a huge success, thank you to all of our participants - we look forward to seeing you all summer long! 

Thanks to all the paw-some love and support, MKE. Keep following our socials,@mkedogpark, and watch our website for regular project updates and additional events that we will be at all summer long! Milwaukee is one step closer to our Dog Park dreams! To learn more about the MKE Dog Park Project or to further contribute, visit
