Day of the Dog


On May 13th from 10 am to 3 pm, Congressional Cemetery is hosting a Day of the Dog festival to celebrate everything we love about dogs.

Mark your calendars for Congressional Cemetery's fourth annual Day of the Dog which includes activities for both people and their pups. Local pet vendors and services will also be present, as well as pet adoption agencies and shelters with dogs and cats ready for adoption. This event is free and open to the public. Tickets to participate in activities will be available for purchase onsite the day of the event. This year's event also features a 5k race at 9:30 am, and registration is $40. Registration for the 5k will open February 27th. For more information, please see: http://hccemetery.wix.com/dayofthedog

Known on Capitol Hill as one of the best places to walk your dog, Congressional Cemetery typically only allows dog-walking privileges to members of the K9 Corps. However, Day of the Dog will open the cemetery to the public and their pups, which is a special opportunity for dog lovers to experience this historic site along with local pet vendors and services.
