Lamar University Homecoming Week 2016
October 26 - 29, 2016
Families and their favorite canines gather together each October to enjoy great food, music and furry fun for Beaumont Main Street's DOGtober Fest! Included in the festivities are a Strut Your Mutt Competition, PAW Readings, Glam-FURR shots, a PAW of Fame and other dog-themed activities.
Plenty of vendors are on hand selling dog paraphernalia including Doggy Couture so attendees should definitely be prepared to do plenty of shopping! Awards are usually given throughout the event for Master/Dog Look Alike, Most Congenial Dog, Cutest Dog, Best Costumed Dog, Most Talented Dog and many others. Of course, the event wouldn't be complete without a Canine Style Show!
In addition to these dog-licious events, there is also a raffle for Dream Doghouses designed and built by local architects and contractors. All proceeds from the raffle benefit Beaumont Main Street and the revitalization of downtown Beaumont, Texas. Admission to DOG-tober Fest is free and everyone is welcome.
To help make life easier, Beaumont has plenty of pet friendly hotels to accommodate your four-legged friend(s). And while you're in town, be sure to check out Beaumont's extensive list of City Parks and outdoor activities sure to keep you and the family busy.
DOG-tober Fest, everyone and their dog will be there!
