Pet-A-Palooza 2018

9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Minnesota State Fairgrounds
1265 Snelling Ave N St Paul, MN 55108

Leash up your pup and join us for the 9th annual Pet-a-Palooza at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds!

This huge, exciting event is jam-packed with:

  • Adoptable dogs from TONS of local rescues, like Secondhand Hounds, Corner of Kindness, Warrior Dog Rescue, and Twin Cities Pet Rescue
  • Pup-loving vendors
  • Entertainment — watch a lot of very talented dogs do their thing
  • A “Human Hydration Station” fueled by Schells Beer
  • And more!

Sidewalk Dog will be there, too, doling out rump pats (for your dogs), selling our Dog-Friendly Passes, handing out tasty Solid Gold treats, and talkin’ all things dog with anyone who stops by our booth.

Don’t miss your chance to bring your dog to this fun summer extravaganza.

See you at the Fair, puppers!


Wags to WCCO News Radio 830, 104.1 Jack FM, Buz’n 102.9, and The Urban Dog for making Pet-A-Palooza possible.

    1) Does Pet A Palooza Festival require us to bring our pet’s vaccination records like some other events do?
    2) Does the Summer Sunset Swimming pool event also require us to provide vaccination records at the event?
    3) Are there any required updated shots to be able to enter the two events?

      There wasn’t any requirement beyond a non-retractable 6’leash last year
