Dog Events in Kentucky

When you want to really spoil your dog, or just meet other dog owners in Kentucky who are as crazy about their pets as you, there’s no better place to bring Fido than a dog event. Attend any of the dog shows, agility competitions, costume parades, festivals or fundraisers in Kentucky on our Dog Events Calendar and you’ll meet hundreds, maybe even thousands, of dog lovers. And since 70% of the events listed benefit humane societies, attending one is a great way to help homeless pets too.

Lights Under Louisville

Lights Under Louisville Each year the Louisville Mega Cavern is transformed into an underground holiday light display for the Christmas season. The event allows the public to drive their own vehicle through the cavern during the Christmas season. Fido must remain in the car with you at all times. Enjoy a 30 minute ride through part of the 17 miles of underground passageways featuring over 900 lit characters and over 6 million points of light. Please refer to their online map for authorized routes into Lights Under Louisville. Due to road closures, GPS may not be accurate. See Details
