Calling all dog and beer lovers of East Texas! 2017 Dogtoberfest - the craft beer festival and dog adoption event is going to be here in Tyler. Join us and the SPCA of East Texas on Saturday October 7 on Market Square Blvd. in Tyler, right behind “Gander Mountain”.

Save the date and join us for a day of food, fun, and ‘fur’!  There will be live music starting at 11 am, pet friendly vendors, and 26 breweries (some of your local favorites) serving up more than 80 craft beers for your tasting pleasure. If you can't make it early, the event lasts all the way to 6 pm so come get some beer and make sure your doggos are fit and happy.

The goal of the event is to help find homes for as many homeless pets as possible. Dogtoberfest 2016 was a huge success last year, and with more breweries and vendors, this year is sure to be bigger and better.

From their website, the SPCA of East Texas' mission is to improve the lives of animals, alleviate their suffering and elevate their status in society.  Dogtoberfest takes place until 6 pm that Saturday afternoon. If you want more information and how you can get tickets you can click here.
