Dog Events in Michigan

When you want to really spoil your dog, or just meet other dog owners in Michigan 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 Michigan 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.

Holly Dickens Festival You and Fido are welcome to the quaint and beautiful Village of Holly, MI! Step back in time to the days of Charles Dickens, and become part of “A Christmas Carol." Your senses will be filled with smells of roasting chestnuts and hot chocolate, and maybe even a lit gruel! Lose yourself the music of Christmas carols sung on the streets, enjoy the colors and decorations of the shops, and feel the warmth of friends and neighbors as you're greeted on the streets. The Festival runs three weekends beginning November 27th. Entertainment will be continuous throughout the festival so be sure to pick up a daily listing of events at the Festival. See Details
