Over the years, Bark in the Park has evolved to accommodate more guests, more activities, and more animals. What began as the city's largest dog-friendly run/walk along Chicago's lakefront has now become one of the premier social events in our great city. There are many options available to all our participants. You can take a casual stroll in the optional lakefront walk, sample some delicious food free of charge, visit our Open-Air Barketplace, and enjoy a refreshing beverage while you relax on the Stadium Green and listen to some live music.

Whatever your preference, you're guaranteed to have an enjoyable time at Bark in the Park this year. And please remember that your support of Chicago's largest dog-friendly event directly makes a difference to thousands of homeless, abandoned, and neglected animals throughout the region.

In other words, your friendship directly saves lives.

We are grateful for your friendship, and we are excited for Bark in the Park this year. On behalf of all the animals, we thank you.


Special thank you to StarEvents the Official Exclusive Manager of Bark in the Park 2019
