Every year, Dogtoberfest Austin holds two events in the Domain. DogtoberTROT, a 1k walk for two-legged and four-legged friends, kicks off the festivities. Dogtoberfest happens directly afterward and includes a Silent Auction, Canine Costume Contest, Wiener Dog Races, pet-related demonstrations, and more. In 2015, over 8,000 people and their canine companions were in attendance!
