Furry Friends Meet-Up


Where's the Paw-ty at?

Join us on Friday, September 9 from 4-7 PM for a Furry Friends Meet-Up during our Dog Days of Summer Campaign!

Help us offset the cost of ongoing pet related maintenance at the Rail Park and join us for a Furry Friends Meet-Up fundraiser! 

Park goers and their dogs are invited to join us for a puppy playdate, complete with treats, a photo booth, giveaways, exclusive merchandise, and special guests. It will be a paws-itively good time! 

We'll be joined by special guests:


We’ll be raffling off one 8”x10” custom watercolor pet portrait by local artist and textile print designer Gina Kim, a $150 value! Raffle tickets are $10 for one or $25 for three, and can be purchased in person at the Furry Friends event, or online.

We'll also have these exclusive Rail Park Dog Days of Summer bandanas available for sale in two colors! Purchase one for yourself or your pup (or both!) for $30 during the Furry Friends event.

Prohibition Taproom and La Chinesca invite Furry Friends attendees to join them in their dog-friendly patio spaces after the Meet-Up! Both establishments will have a special Rail Park cocktail on the menu, benefitting the Dog Days of Summer Fundraising Campaign.

This meet-up is the final event in our Dog Days of Summer Fundraising Campaign- an effort to engage dog owners and enhance park stewardship through fundraising and spreading awareness of regulations and best practices for people who walk their dogs at the Rail Park.

Registration recommended but not required.
