Your Dog-Friendly Seattle Weekend: October 6-9, 2022

Some pups may say that Seattle summer is where it’s at, but with the crisp air and larches changing colors, Seattle fall isn’t too bad either. Leash up and hit the town with some of the best things to do for a dog-friendly Seattle weekend!

1. Trivia Night at Dog Yard Bar

Dog Yard Bar, Seattle 
Thursday, October 6, 7:30–9 p.m.; registration required

Who’s a smart girl? Clearly your dog, but now it’s time to prove it. Get your crew together for Dog Yard Bar’s monthly trivia. Don’t forget to reserve your table beforehand, and that dogs mutts either have a membership or purchase a day pass before the event! Check-in begins at 7 p.m.

2. Oktoberfest at Ounces

Ounces Taproom & Beer Garden, Seattle
Friday, October 7, 3–10 p.m.
Saturday, October 8, 2–10 p.m.
Sunday, October 9, 12–8 p.m.

An Oktoberfest in October? Groundbreaking. With over 30+ rotating taps, local beers, Oktoberfest beers and food, and Oompah music, what else could you need? Nothing besides your best bud drinking with you, of course.

3. On The Block Street Market

11th & East Pike, Seattle
Saturday, October 8, 1–9 p.m.

There’s nothing better than shopping local, and you’ll be able to do all that and more at On The Block Second Saturdays in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. Doggo’s got her eyes on some new fall fashion and a taste for pup-kin spice snacks, so bring her wallet cuz there’s 30+ local vendors at this market. If you’re not in the mood for shopping, there’ll also be interactive art, community activations, and live music. 

4. SODO Flea Market

SODO Flea Market, Seattle
Saturday, October 8, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.

Your dog may be on monthly flea and tick preventatives, but we promise this flea won’t bite! Named one of HGTV’s best flea markets across the United States, this is the place to find cool new home decor, vintage clothes, and more. Don’t think we forgot pup; Puddles Barkery will be on-site selling delicious, handmade dog treats. 

5. Halloween Pet Parade

Volunteer Park, Seattle
Saturday, October 8, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.

Trying to decide which Halloween costume Floof should wear this year? Maybe you don’t have to choose!
