Golden Retrievers and their humans are invited to a huge party in — where else? — Golden on Saturday, February 4, 2023. The Goldens in Golden meet-up starts at 11 a.m. near the Golden Visitors Center and Parfet Park at 10th and Washington Avenue. Participating pooches and their people are invited to gather for a FREE dog photo and nab a FREE doggie bag.
At 11 a.m. there will be:
- Golden Retriever Meet and Mingle in Parfet Park
- Free Pup Cups (whipped cream) for the dogs, giveaways and vendor booths
- Photo ops on Washington Avenue, a “selfie station” & group photo under the “Welcome to Golden” arch
Local pet vendors and nonprofit organizations, including the Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies, Foothills Animal Shelter and Morris Animal Foundation, will also be on hand to showcase their good work.
Many Golden businesses are offering a variety of Goldens in Golden activities, specials and fun. There will be patio dining deals, fun specially made dog treats at area shops, dog-filled beer gardens with specials and more.
A few things to note:
1. Goldens in Golden is extremely weather-dependent and will be cancelled in the event of inclement weather, especially ice or snow. Please check the website, Facebook event, and @VisitGoldenCO social channels the morning of the event to confirm it’s a go.
2. Please RSVP to Goldens In Golden Facebook Event on the Facebook page if you plan to attend so organizers can prepare accordingly. Be sure to follow Facebook and Instagram @VisitGoldenCO for important updates.
3.) National Golden Retriever Day actually falls on Friday, February 3, but their event will be held on SATURDAY to allow for more people to enjoy the event.
If you plan to bring your well behaved Golden to Golden, please keep your pooch leashed and be sure to clean up after your dog.
