Popular Addison After Dark event returns for third year with activities for you and your pet

Addison, Texas -- Calling all dog lovers—your four-legged friend can join in the fun at the Addison After Dark Pints & Pups event on Aug 20. There’s something for every member of the family at this festival dedicated to dogs and their parents. Canine-focused activities include a pop-up dog park and “arfs” and crafts, while two-legged guests can enjoy live music, food trucks and complimentary beer sampling from local craft breweries!

There’s no shortage of pup-focused activities for your pooch to explore at this event. The pop-up dog park (featuring both small and large dog sections) is the perfect place for your dog to run wild. Let your Pup-casso express their artistic side with bandana decorating and paw-print art, then capture the moment with a family picture in the photo booth. You can even adopt a new fur-ever friend at the event: Addison Animal Control will be on-site with adoptable dogs.

The event will also have plenty of people-friendly activities. Enjoy live music by Colton Hamilton with a lineup of blues, rock, soul and R&B, and Missing 3 Band, featuring classic and current rock. Guests ages 21 and up can savor the flavors of local craft breweries while supplies last. Participating brands include Hop & Sting Brewing Co., Peticolas Brewing Co., TUPPS Brewery, Breaking Brew Meadery, Franconia Brewing Co., Paulaner USA and more. Find the complete list of breweries on the event website.

You’ll also want to spend some time shopping at the Barketplace. Get treats from The Pet Treat Truck, find a new leash at Lula Pup Shop and explore the offerings of Pappy’s Pet Lodge. If your pet is already spoiled enough, there’ll be vendors for humans, too, including Nikki’s Popcorn Company and Texas Life Outfitter.

Pack a picnic or travel light and purchase gyros, garlic fries and fresh lemonade from Cristi & Ali Cuisine, street tacos, nachos and quesadillas from Crown Catering Texas and fried chicken from Golden Chick. Wanting to cool off with a sweet treat or beverage? Frios Gourmet Pops will serve popsicles and pupsicles and America’s Finest Beverages will be selling beer, wine and soda. 

To make the most of the evening, dress comfortably, bring a blanket or lawn chair, and get ready for an unforgettable night out in Addison!

Enjoy free events starting at 7 p.m. on the third Saturday of the month, April through November, except for September, when Oktoberfest takes over the park.
