Balloon Fiesta Park


For 36 years, Animal Humane has held our signature event and largest fundraiser, Doggie Dash & Dawdle. Recognized as Albuquerque’s must-attend pet-lover event, Doggie Dash attracts attendees and canines from all over the state and beyond!

The field opens at 8 am.  The Human only USATF certified race, begins at 8:30 am.  Trot on over at 10:00 am with your canine for the USATF certified race.  The leisurely Dawdle begins at 11:30 am.

Be sure to stick around after the race for some paw-pular events going on around the field.  Get some early Holiday shopping done at Barketplace, where 50+ vendors display pet-centric wares. Check out the Carnival and try your paw at games like Build a Biscuit, Bobbing for String Cheese, Paw Print Art, Cake Walk and many more.  Sit! for a spell and have your portrait drawn by one of our talented caricature artists. Have your picture taken with your favorite canine at the Pup-parazzi Photo Booth.

Have a howling good time at the Performance Arena and see Fly-ball, Doggie Barrel Racing, Small Dog Sprint and more.

Thirsty after all that activity?  Relax in the Beer Garden, hosted by our premier beer partner, Red Door Brewing Company. The garden opens at 11 am. Have a bite to eat at one of many food trucks and try your paw at the lawn games.

Doggie Dash & Dawdle is truly family and canine friendly.  Don’t miss out!  Register now.
