Our 5th Annual Dawg Daze of Summer will be on June 11th, 2017 at Alto Vineyards. Join us for this family and pet friendly all day event to raise money for local rescue organizations.

We have collected over $30,000 in previous years to donate to rescue organizations in our region and we’re hoping for a record-breaking year for our fifth year! This is a great and easy way to “Be a Hero” to animals in need!

We’ll have music all day with 100.7 KGMO broadcasting live from 12:00 to 2:00 and live bands for the rest of the afternoon. The Natives Band, Bosco & Whiteford, Wil Maring & Robert Bowlin
and Jackson Bandwagon will be providing music for the afternoon.

We’ll have rescue groups onsite with adoptable dogs and fun activities at each booth. There is a calendar contest for our first Dawg Daze calendar, submissions can be sent to events@altovineyards.net. We’ll have a doggie photobooth and a costume contest for hero dogs!

The Hangry Hut will be serving southern fried catfish, shrimp tacos & more from 12:00-6:00 p.m. The Angelina Foundation will have hot dogs and lemon shakeups. Alto Vineyards will have BBQ plates and veggie burgers.

$10 per person and kids under 12 are free!
