Woofstock – Toronto’s Festival for Dogs 2013

Dubbed as North America’s largest Festival for Dogs (also called Woofstock), hundreds of endearing, fluffy canines congregate in Toronto every summer to check out the latest dog fashion trends and taste some dog food for free. And maybe, to get acquainted with what’s cool and what’s not in their own dog world. Or simply to celebrate it—doggy style!

If you were at St. Lawrence Market neighborhood on its first day, you can’t really move freely—it’s not just crowded with humans but also with furry, four-footed man’s best friends. Amazingly, the dogs which were brought by its owners were very sociable—and they ruled the festival with their cuteness, bigness, fabulousness and adorableness! Each one of them loved to be petted.

It’s a weekend of canine awesomeness!

Woofstock attracts 300,000 dog aficionados in a two-day celebration (June 8-9, 2013) which includes Mr. and Mrs. Canine Canada, Best Costume contest (with generous prizes), stupid dog trick shows, canine games, etc…

More than 200 companies / booths selling and giving away free products/food for dogs were everywhere ranging from dog fashion to food to accessories to grooming. Water containers were accessible in every corner, too. The queue in booths that offered free dog grooming may be long but the dogs, just like their owners, were patient to wait for their turn. The round fountain at Berczy Park was full of wet, playful canines enjoying frisbee.

Even if you are not a dog person, these canines will get you at their first bark!

On the first day of the festival, a number of dog participants joined in the Best Costume contest. Three judges ranted about and rated the costumes in a scale of 1-5. The ones with perfect scores were called back in on stage and they were judged again but according to how loud the public cheered / responded to each of them when their names were called.

Enjoy the show.
