Join us for a fun filled day you and your family will absolutely enjoy in beautiful Lake City, Florida at Darby Pavilion at Desoto Lake from 10AM - 3PM.
Fall in Love With Your Next Furry Family Member
There will be vendors, entertainment, races, contests and great food. Come to participate or just to watch, laugh and cheer! The Lake City WuffStock Festival has many exciting events for all sizes & breeds of dogs to enter.
Admission is FREE!
Some events have a small registration fee while others are free. Breeds of all sizes can participate in the races & costume contests, Who Traveled the Furthest to Attend, The Oldest Dog in the Crowd, Smooching Pooches and the Best Nose timed competition. Wow us with what you have taught Fido to do in the Best Trick Contest. Test you & your pooches skills with the K9 Team Challenge course including weave poles, tunnels, and jumps!
The K9 Challenge
The K9 team challenge is a timed, teamed event for you and your dog. Together, you will go through the challenge course and whichever team completes it the fastest wins the coveted Fire Hydrant Award and bragging rights for a full year!
Donation pledges are optional but the team that raises the highest pledged donations for Covenant Pet Trust wins a grand prize.
This charity race is the most fun you'll have showing off your wiener! Enjoy the antics while our best friends run their little legs off (for 20 feet at least) to benefit CPT programs that provide wheels and other equipment for animals with special needs.
This race is open to disabled dogs of any breed 14 inches or less at the shoulders. We also have our Beat the Heat race, which is open to all breeds 14 inches or less at the shoulders. This race benefits the CPT Pay It Forward Program.
All contests are open to all sizes & breeds of dogs with the exception of the Longest Purebred Doxie. Registration is required either prior to or day of event.
