2019 Devens Dog Festival

June 2 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Devens – Bring your dog, and join the 2019 Devens Dog Festival on Sunday, June 2, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at Museum Field in Devens for a fun-filled, wagging-good time. Clear Path for Veterans New England, the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley, and the Rotary Club of Ayer, Devens, Harvard and Shirley are once again working together to host an eventful festival. Net proceeds will fund the Dogs2Vets program’s training of new service dogs for veterans.

Clear Path for Veterans NE along with the Rotary clubs of Nashoba Valley and Ayer, Devens, Harvard and Shirley are excited to bring the Dogs2Vets mission to New England, matching service dogs with local veterans. The program, perfected in Clear Path for Veterans’ center in New York state, involves the veteran in the canine-training process, working together with the trainer to achieve individual goals.

The goal of the 2019 Devens Dog Festival is to raise enough funds to provide at least two service dogs to local veterans. Festival sponsorships include the opportunity to either sponsor or co-sponsor a service dog.

The admission fee is $10 per non-veteran adult, which will be collected at the entrance. Veterans, military personnel, children under 12, and dogs will get in for free. Dogs must be on a leash that is no longer than six feet and have up-to-date vaccinations.

Both sponsorships levels and vendor space, for $50 per 10-foot-by-10-foot space, are available. For more information on sponsorship levels and vendor space, contact Donna Bulger at 508-308-0724 or [email protected].

Clear Path for Veterans New England is a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization, established in 2017 with one mission: to build a safe, supportive and respectful place for veterans to seek the help and resources they need in order to successfully integrate into their communities.
