WHERE: This year’s festival will be held at Mill Point Park in Downtown Hampton. Plenty of public parking is available in the downtown area!

Barktoberfest is the Peninsula SPCA’s annual fundraiser to benefit homeless animals! This family (and dog)-friendly event will include rescues, vendors, exhibitors, and community partners, and of course, their annual dog walk! Guests can enjoy fun fall activities, live music and a craft-brew beer garden! And as always, all proceeds will benefit the animals and programs of the Peninsula SPCA.



The Barktoberfest Dog Walk is a pledge-walk to help raise money for our community’s homeless animals at the Peninsula SPCA! When you register to walk, you also have the opportunity to raise money for the SPCA and win prizes!


Individual Fundraisers: When you register, you receive a free personal fundraising web page that you can customize and share with your friends, co-workers and family. Cash donations will be collected in advance of the walk during PSPCA’s Bank Days at the shelter (Tuesday and Wednesday, October 16 & 17 – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
