The Ardmore Neighborhood Association (ANA) will host the first annual Ardmore Dog Festival on Sunday, April 30 at Miller Park. Join your two-legged and four-legged friends and neighbors for an afternoon of furry fun and wagging tails. Activities will include demonstrations, competitions, and Ardmore’s first-ever pop-up dog park! All dogs are encouraged to enter a contest—no experience necessary! This is a family-friendly event, and all are welcome. The event is free and open to the public.
Thank you to the many local businesses participating in this event, including Ruff Housing, Off Leash K9 Training, Cafe Gelato, Karaoke America, Ardmore Realty, Tar Heel Basement, The Natural Dog, Ardmore Renovations, and Home Real Estate.
