Returning for a second consecutive year on Saturday, October 21 to Knightdale Station Park, Knightdale Dogtoberfest will be a day full of “dog-themed” fun for the whole family and “man’s best friend.”

Knightdale Dogtoberfest kicks off in the same fashion as the inaugural event did last year, with the running (or walking) of the “2k9” Fun Run starting at noon. The run will loop around Knightdale Station Park and prizes will be given out at the conclusion of the “2k9” to the top several finishers. On top of these runners being awarded prizes, their will also be goody bags given out to the first 100 contestants that had signed up for the fun run at Knightdale Dogtoberfest.

Continuing in what figure to be a Knightdale Dogtoberfest tradition, will be the return of the wildly popular dog costume contest which will also see prizes awarded in a variety of categories to the dogs that will be judged by the local girl scouts.

Likewise, there will once again be a booth at Knightdale Dogtoberfest set up by the Wake County Animal Shelter (WCAS) where information and literature on how to adopt a dog will be provided. For those looking to leave Knightdale Dogtoberfest with a new pet, you will also be able to actually adopt a dog through the WCAS as well. Several other pet related vendors will also be on hand to share in this day dedicated to the dogs.

Heading into the fall season, Knightdale Dogtoberfest is just one of the many great community and family friendly events that the Town of Knightdale will be holding at Knightdale Station Park. You can find a full listing of the events coming up at Knightdale Station on their events page at or for a full listing of all the great upcoming events this fall and into the winter visit the official Town of Knightdale website at
