First Thursday: Dog Days in Del Ray

  • May 03, 2018
  • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Along Mt. Vernon Avenue


    Del Ray, one of the most dog-friendly neighborhoods in the region, highlights "Dog Days in Del Ray" during its May First Thursday.  The monthly street festival takes place on May 3 from 6pm to dusk along Mount Vernon Avenue. 

    Bring your favorite four-legged friend out to the Avenue for a wide variety of canine-themed activities for dogs (and their humans!).  The event is free and open to all.

     Participants are encouraged to bring wet canned dog food, Kongs, puzzle feeders, bully sticks or other digestible dog chews, rope slip leashes, cans of tuna and salmon for cats, KBR formula, and kitten food for the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria. The Animal Welfare League of Alexandria provides shelter to animals in need and promotes adoptions, animal welfare, and responsible pet ownership in the Alexandria community. Donations will be collected at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at Mt. Vernon & Oxford Avenues.

    Held the first Thursday from April to September along Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, First Thursday is a series of free outdoor street festivals that bring the community together around a fun theme, benefiting a local nonprofit.  This month’s event is sponsored by the Del Ray Business Association and Your Dog's Best Friend.
