JHU Museums Festival of Dogs at Evergreen

Enjoy a fun-filled morning of canine competition at Evergreen Museum & Library! Once home to two generations of Baltimore’s civic-minded and dog-loving Garrett family, Evergreen is delighted to host its inaugural Festival of Dogs, featuring a dog show of nine entertaining classes ranging from Best Dog Kiss to Best Owner Look-Alike, followed by a Best in Show finale.
