Sign your pooch up for some doggy games, including the crowd-favorite peanut butter licking contest!

    Morton Arboretum is a Beautiful Treasure - Fun Event for Dogs

    The Morton only allows dogs a few times a year. The Tails-On-Trails events are a great chance to take a hike with your dogs and see this beautiful Chicagoland treasure.

    Excellent photo ops - around trees, lakes, and flowers.

    The event has a bunch of local rescues and dog-related businesses. There's food at the Morton restaurants and food vendors/trucks.

    There are also demonstrations and activities for your dogs.

    In 2018 there's a "Troll Hunt" which is a blast for kids of all ages.

    Rain or shine - we won't miss this event.
