Summer at SAM: Dog Night is August 3rd

Prepare for puppy paradise at Olympic Sculpture Park!

Dog owners and lovers alike are invited to this evening catered to canines. Dogs are always welcome at the Olympic Sculpture Park, but tonight, showing your pet what they mean to you is a walk in the park. Expect dog-friendly treats and activities.

It’s going to be a hot evening (possibly 95+ degrees), so put on some sunscreen and bring water for yourself. There will be water bowls placed along Z Path so your pups can stay hydrated too. All dogs must be on a six-foot leash. Please remember to clean up after your dogs. Only service animals are allowed in the PACCAR Pavilion.
