Golden Retrievers and their humans are invited to a huge party in — where else? — Golden on Saturday, February 5, 2022. The Goldens in Golden meet-up starts at 11 a.m. at the Golden Visitors Center. Participating pooches and their people are invited to gather for a FREE dog photo and nab a FREE doggie bag.
At 11:45 a.m., the group will walk through Golden, pausing for photos under Golden’s iconic Welcome to Golden arch. The Goldens will strut through town, along Clear Creek path and return to the Visitors Center.
Official festivities end at 1 p.m. and Washington Avenue will re-open to vehicle traffic. Afterwards, head out around Golden on your own. There will be many dog-friendly deals, plenty of patios and lots of nearby trails to enjoy.
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 us on Facebook and Instagram @VisitGoldenCO for important updates.
3.) National Golden Retriever Day actually falls on Thursday, 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. For more information and to RSVP please visit Visit Golden’s Facebook event page or check out this website.
