Avenue of the Barks – Philly

Emancipet will co-host the first ever Avenue of the Barks in conjunction with Wawa's Welcome America Festival. Avenue of the Barks will bring pet families together in a space specifically designed with furry family members in mind.

Avenue of the Barks will feature turf-covered pavement, to protect sensitive paws (thanks to 215 Tailgate Co.!). Additional activities for you and your dog include: 

  • Sample the Titos’s Vodka “BARKarita” or visit their merchandise booth for doggie merch and a hydration station for your pups.
  • Tailgate at the tented lounge with your dog and 215 Tailgate Company. They will have the big game (the Puppy Bowl) on the big screen as well as samples of hot dogs and Gatorade. 
  • Hang out with Veterinary Emergency Group (VEG) to learn about animal emergency services. 
  • Get a photo courtesy of barKadelphia who will have a "Greetings from Philadelphia - BARKADELPHIA" backdrop!
  • If you’re more into a pawtrait of your furry friend, PawTraits Pop-Up will be offering professional portraits.
  • Sample from the "BARKuturie Board" thanks to Saint Rocco's Treats.
  • Enjoy the ice plunge pools, or tennis ball pool, or the “Forage Forest” where pups can scavenge for some hidden Saint Rocco's treats.
  • Cool off with the water bar provided by The Philadelphia Water Authority
  • And more!

Come out to Avenue of the Barks and support Emancipet and our mission to provide affordable veterinary care for all. Join us on Saturday, June 29 from 11 AM to 7 PM on S. Broad Street and Locust St. (Avenue of the Arts).
