You and your dog can walk the catwalk and show off your unique style and pride, for a chance to win fun prizes. Big, small, or just plain fabulous, everyone is welcome and has the chance to be proclaimed “best in show.” PRIZES will be awarded for two categories: Most Pride: Dog, and Most Pride: Prideful Pair (Dog & Human).

Ongoing (12-3PM):

+ Pup Psychic – See into your dog’s future – or past! Our psychics will perform tarot readings for your pup.

+ Pet Reiki for Healing – Have your dog experience the many powers of Reiki, from physical healing to using sources of energy to better connect with your pooch.

+ Pup-a-razzi Photo Op – Capture an Instagrammable moment as you and your pup pose alongside a variety of icons—including RuPaul, Beyonce, and Dorothy & Toto from the Wizard of Oz—among others. Guests are welcome to use their own phones to take pictures.

+ Paw-Traits of Pride – While experiencing our photo opportunity with your pup, professional photographers from SpotMyPhoto will be on hand to capture your photo. Portraits can then be accessed digitally or printed onsite.

+ Local BARK-et of Treats – What dog doesn’t love treats? Stroll our amazing doggie treats market full of organic and health-minded snacks and treats that not only support your dog’s health but also showcase NYC’s incredible community of local producers. All treats are free, while supplies last.
