Dogtoberfest: Dogs, Dine and Wine

Bring your dog, sip some wine and help out local pet rescues at the ninth annual Dogtoberfest: Dogs, Dine and Wine Pet Expo. The event, which brings together pet rescue organizations from around the Lowcountry, returns to Freshfields Village near Kiawah Island on Saturday, Oct. 17 from 1-5 p.m.

In addition to meet-and-greets with local rescue groups and the annual wine tasting, this free event include:

  • Delicious food trucks
  • Live entertainment
  • On-site vendors
  • Pet costume contest
  • Blessing of the animals
  • Exciting prizes and giveaways, and more!

New for this year, FortyEight Wine Bar will be providing the wine for the event. FortyEight is a new wine bar opening at Freshfields Village that will offer 48 (hence the name) different wines by the glass each day.

Proceeds from Dogtoberfest benefit the participating pet rescue organizations, including: Shih Tzus and Furbabies, Grateful Goldens Rescue, Greyhound Pets of America – Charleston, Carolina Coonhound Rescue, Pet Helpers, Water’s Edge Animal Rescue, Lowcountry Lab Rescue and King Charles Cavalier Spaniel Rescue.

Dogtoberfest is hosted by the Kiawah Island Community Association and presented by the Charleston Animal Society. Other event sponsors include: Freshfields Village, Angel Oak Animal Hospital, FortyEight Wine Bar and Creekside Pet Retreat.
