Event Overview


Over the years, BARK has evolved to accommodate more guests, more activities, and more animals. What began as Chicago's largest dog-friendly run/walk along the lakefront has now become one of the premier social events in our great city. There are many options available to 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 music. 

Whatever your preference, you're guaranteed to have fun at BARK this year. And please remember that your support of Chicago's largest dog-friendly event makes a difference directly to thousands of animals throughout the region. 

In other words, your friendship saves lives. 

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

Special thank you to StarEvents the Official Exclusive Manager of BARK 2022.
