The Whole Enchihuahua


Thank you to everyone who came to Dolores Park last Sunday, May 1st for...

The Whole Enchihuahua

The winning dog in our Costume Contest was Chiquita, whose human Deanna helped her channel her inner Frida Kahlo.

Event photos by Kira Stackhouse—who donated a glamourous pet portrait session to the Grand Prize winner of our Costume Contest!—can be found here! Web-resolution photos are available for purchase, and sales benefit the SF SPCA!

More photos to come!


Enter your dog in the costume contest from 2-3pm and prove what you already know: you have the spiciest dog in San Francisco. The winning dog with the cutest and most original costume will receive an amazing prize package.

Prizes include 2 tickets from Virgin America**, 2 night stay at the Hotel Monaco, 2 tickets to Grub Crawl, a Pet Portrait Session from Nuena Photography valued at $300 and more!

Many dogs will enter.  Only one dog will win. Costumes highly encouraged. All sizes and breeds welcome to enter.

Contestants will be scored based on :

  • Personality

  • Showmanship

The first 100 people who register their dog(s) "at the event" for the contest, will receive a food voucher for a signature dish from one of our Off the Grid vendors.

Come for the contest, stay for the fun.
