ABOUT THE EVENT
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. No dog? No problem. The winners in each category will be chosen by the audience, so come support your favorite pups and cheer them on to victory! Proceeds from the event will benefit education, interpretation, and preservation efforts at the Johns Hopkins University Museums.
