Residents of Rocklin appreciate the city’s diverse culture. The city boasts a wide variety of annual and one-time events including theater productions, sports events, free movies, makers fairs, and more. One of the unique Rocklin Events to take place recently was the dog-themed Woofstock.
What is Woofstock?
Rocklin Woofstock is a yearly event designed just for dogs and their owners. It boasts a wide variety of dog- and people-friendly, activities, food trucks, live entertainment, local vendors, and much more. The proceeds raised by the festival are used to benefit local dog rescue groups and the Rocklin dog park.
This Year’s Dog-Friendly Events
In addition to plenty of vendors selling specialty goods and tasty dog-friendly treats, the festival also included two rescue runs, a Precious Paws art station, free ice cream sandwiches, police K-9 demos, and rattlesnake avoidance training. The Grateful Dog Rescue Run is a 1/8 mile fun run designed to be accessible for kids, while the 5k run is a longer race. The proceeds from this race went to benefit RRUFF Healing Heroes, an organization that provides service dogs to disabled veterans.
Support Local Rescue Groups
There are plenty of local rescue groups in Rocklin working to ensure every dog has a healthy, happy home. Visitors to Woofstock were afforded the opportunity to learn more about the area’s wide variety of rescue organizations in addition to its local vendors at the festival.
Doggie Day Spa
Owners who love to pamper their pups certainly appreciated the Posh Puppy day spa. This unique company provided cool-down pools in addition to traditional doggie spa treatments.
Doggie Dress Up
