Muttzanita 2016 – Which Way to the Beach?

Muttzanita 2016

Taking a spin on the city’s name, hundreds of dog lovers will gather in Manzanita Oregon Sept 18th for the 8th annual Muttzanita festival.

Sunday will have local businesses and vendor booths, games and contests (for humans too) keeping festival goers busy and engaged during the full day of activities.

Where else can you experience the wonders of the Oregon coast and engage with like-minded animal lovers? The day is packed with dog & human related contests and hilarious activities, demonstrations, gourmet dog biscuits, numerous vendor booths, children activities, an animal (and human) costume contest and pet parade down main street on Sunday morning. The day’s events come to a close at 3:00 pm.

The festival welcomes well-behaved dogs and cats of all sizes and shapes (and their humans)  that are at least 6 months old and are on a short leash.
