The annual Pawtoberfest is back after several years to benefit homeless and abused puppies


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) — The Pikes Peak Humane Society’s annual Pawtoberfest kicks off at 9 a.m. Saturday at Bear Creek Regional Park.

The event is one of the Humane Society’s most popular fundraisers. It is expected to attract over 1,500 people and raise over $200,000 to benefit the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region. All ticket sales benefit Humane Society programs.

Pawtoberfest is one of the only dog-friendly festivals in Colorado, bringing together puppies, beer, and German culture for a play during Octoberfest. The event features craft beer and spirit tastings, a two-mile dog walk, giveaways, music, pet contests, family-friendly activities, and food from local food trucks.

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the community is very happy to see the event back in full swing. The event will continue until 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 17.
