Everfest's Take

From the Organizer

The City of Santee and Entercom are proud to present Fido Fest: My Furry Valentine! The event will take place Saturday, February 15 from Noon-4 p.m. We have partnered with Entercom, owner of five local radio stations, to create the biggest and best Fido Fest yet! By moving the event to February, we are hoping to take advantage of milder weather to create a more comfortable event for the dogs. We are expecting at least 2,500 attendees this year. Pet parents will have the opportunity to participate in multiple activities with their canine companions, including “arfs & crafts” and a fun look-a-like contest! We will have multiple non-profit dog rescue organizations on-site, hoping to find their pups a forever home. This year we really want to emphasize the amazing non-profit rescues in our San Diego area by having a donation drive and raffle just for them. Be sure to bring food and other necessities for dogs in need! A Wide Variety of Exhibitors Great Giveaways & Fun for both the Two-Legged AND Four-Legged Dog Adoption from Dozens of Rescue Groups Discounted Vaccinations, Microchipping, Dog Licensing and Heartworm & Flea Preventatives Fly Ball, Training and a Variety of other Demonstrations Live Entertainment Blanket & Food Drive for Local Rescues The Latest & Greatest Pet Products And SO MUCH MORE!!! For a fur-tastic time: No female dogs in heat Dogs attending must be social and friendly with other dogs and people Dogs attending must be comfortable in crowds Dogs who display aggressive behavior, as determined by the City of Santee volunteers or staff, will be asked to leave Dogs must be up to date on vaccinations. This means puppies must be over 4 months old and have completed their full set of puppy vaccinations, including rabies. All dogs must be kept on a leash, no longer than 6 feet, at all times Dogs must be ready to have a good time, exhibited by lots of tail wagging!
