Newtown Strut Your Mutt Dog Walk and Fair

Newtown’s 10th Annual Strut Your Mutt event will be held on May 18 from 11am to 2pm, with registration beginning at 10:30am. This dog-friendly event will include a 2K dog walk, the Strut Your Mutt Pageant, vendors from across Connecticut, prizes, games and food.

  Proceeds raised will support the Newtown Park & Bark, the off-leash dog park located on Old Farm Road in Newtown. It is run by a volunteer group of Newtown resident dog lovers who joined forces in 2009. The town provided a parcel of land. Private donations and annual fundraising events have raised funds to create and maintain the two-acre field adjacent to the animal shelter.

  Admission is $10 per dog; there is a limit of three dogs per handler. This year, they’ve added the option to create teams. Team up by breed, color, size or just buddies; a six-pack can register for just $50. Those who register before May 15 will receive a free gift.

For more information, email FriendsOfNewtownParkandBark@gmail.com or visit NewtownParkandBark.org. Event Location: Trades Ln and Keating Farms Ave (at the flagpole), Fairfield Hills Campus, Newtown.
