2017 Pet Pageant for Dogs

The Pet Pageant returns!  The Pet Pageant will be held at 1:00pm on the Welcome Center Stage on Henry Street.

Our 2017 Pet Pageant is proudly sponsored by Fin & Feather of Ashland.  All dogs will receive goodies courtesy of Fin & Feather.  Meet VCU’s Rodney Ram! 

Sign up your canine for any of the following categories:

  • Best Hair or Fur
  • Cutest Dog
  • Prettiest Eyes
  • Best Costume (strawberry-themed is encouraged!)
  • Most Amazing Trick
  • Singing Award
  • “Berry” Best Dog

You may sign up your canine contestant as late as 12:30pm the day of the Faire – just go to the Welcome Center Stage.

Each Pet must be people and animal friendly and will be required to be on a leash controlled by the handler at all times.  The handler must come prepared to handle any potential “poop bag” incidents.

Kiss a Dog in the Kissing Booth!

The Hanover Humane Society is teaming up with Fin & Feather to “Kiss a Dog for a Good Cause!”  For a $1 donation to the Hanover Humane Society,  you can kiss – or be kissed – by a sweet dog.

The Kissing Booth will be open from 11am – 3pm near the RMC Welcome Center Stage on Henry Street.
