DENTON, TX – The sun is shining, tails are wagging, and the community is buzzing with excitement for the Dog Days of Denton 2023! Hosted by the Denton Parks Foundation, this year’s event promises to be a spectacular celebration of our beloved four-legged friends.

Scheduled for September 9, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM at Quakertown Park and Civic Center Pool, the event will feature a plethora of activities that will have both humans and their furry companions barking in delight. From dancing dogs to canine couture, there’s something for everyone.

Highlights of the Event Include:
