Dog Days of Summer at Tuckerton Seaport
August 10 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm$20
About Dog Days of Summer at Tuckerton Seaport
New this year, grab your family (including the 4 legged members) and head on down to Tuckerton Seaport to celebrate the Dogs Days of Summer on Saturday, August 10th from 11 am-5 pm. For one day only, dogs will have their run of the place. This festival will feature an All American Picnic, local craft beer, live music, family and pet friendly activities sponsored by the Rancocas Veterinary Associates, bobbing for tennis balls, pet portraits, and a puppy petting zoo! There will also be a chance to meet and greet different breeds of dogs looking for good families to join. We suggest not coming to this event if you are a cat person!
Beat the Summer Heat with the pop-up mini-sprayground! Perfect for kids, dogs, and anyone trying to cool off on a hot summer day.
The Old Farmer’s Almanac lists the Dog Days as coinciding with the rising of Sirius, the Dog Star, when the Ancient Egyptians believed this star was the watchdog for the Nile’s annual flooding. While they know quite a bit about flooding at Tuckerton, they never let the Dogs Days of Summer or flooding get in the way. Let’s celebrate the summer with a tail wagging good time.
