UNDER CONTRACTION! ! !
This year ONLY, our FALL event will be the same weekend as the Greyhounds (Columbus Day weekend). In the future, will be changing our weekend so check back for more details!
We will be haveing some safety tips we will need to follow for the FALL event!
PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS EVENT HAS BEEN PULLED TOGETHER BY A FEW VOLUNTEERS WHO LOVE THEIR GOLDENS AND DEWEY BEACH.
It is not a huge organized vendor show with every moment packed with activities. The schedule below allows for plenty of group fun as well as time on your own. We’re just excited to gather together with our goldies. If anyone wants to help make these events even better, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
FALL and Spring Jubilee Schedule
Friday Evening –
7 pm: Join the Goldrush to Rehoboth’s Boardwalk.
(Feel free to come earlier and grab a bite to eat and relax around the bandstand area to meet other goldens and their people.)
Join us at Bandshell at the main entrance to the boardwalk for announcements. We’ll then begin our Gold Rush as we stroll through Rehoboth Beach’s beautiful town with our favorite blondes- – aka goldens. We are sure to bring smiles to so many as we parade through the town! As we return to our staring point, feel free to disband and venture on your own, enjoying the shops and food along the way. We can’t help but make new friends as we go!
10 am: Dagworthy Street by the Lifeguard Station BEFORE THE DUNES to the Beach: Blessing of the Animals, announcements from Mayor Hanson and others. Recognition of special attendees and prizes – be sure to register! Please do not head for the beach until dismissed. There are goodies to be handed-out and group photos to be taken!
11 am or immediately after prizes: Group Photos Special HUGE Group Photos of EVERYONE and also pics of GRLS HEROS , Pets On Wheels, GRREAT, Goldheart, DVGRR, KPETS, Tarameg and other breeders, etc. Groups for photos – meet at the fence on the beach side of the dunes.
** AGAIN THIS YEAR ** 3 pm: Poop Patrol Stroll – Sadly, there have been complaints by locals of doggie poo left on the beach. To ensure this does not happen on our watch, we’ll be forming a ‘chorus line’ type parade to stole along the beach armed with poop bags . We’ll be on the look-out for those little mines that may have been left behind.
7 pm: Bonfire hosted by GRREAT! THANK YOU for providing this event highlight! A few items to bring along are a flashlight, marshmallows and the lights that you clip to your dog’s collar! Hope to see you there!

OTHER Weekend ACTIVITIES OF INTEREST
– Blessing of the Animals for the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi at various churches in Rehoboth Beach
– This year we’re a bit early so we’ll miss the Rehoboth Beach Sidewalk Sales (10/7 & 8)
-Visit Nassau Valley Vineyards – 32165 Winery Way, Lewes. The vineyard does allow dogs on the property but not in any of the buildings. Well behaved dogs are welcome on leash. It is peak wedding season so it is best to plan to visit earlier in the day. The later part of the afternoon tends to be high traffic with the caterers and other wedding vendors arriving. There are picnic tables outside, so feel free to bring lunch and hang out with the pups. Please be sure to keep them out of the flower beds and the ceremony site in Bacchus Grove.
– Dog Fish Head Craft Brewery Tour – (no pups for this one though)
