North America’s largest dog festival heads indoors for the first time.

Oh My! Pugs in parkas, terriers in toques and mutts in mufflers vie for the spotlight along with “Wiener DogRaces,” “Breakast with Santa” and much much more…
Woofstock is shifting into holiday mode – a weekend-long winter festival and shopping extravaganza where dogs and owners can play, shop and meet Santa–and have their photo taken with the jolly old man himself.
Winter Woofstock’s highlights include:
Fashion show: Lively four-legged models will sport selections from the latest toasty doggie fashion lines.
Funny man Nathan Macintosh will host Winter Woofstock’s main stage on Saturday with talented judges:
Paul Bellini, Rob Trick, Tim Dorsch.
The hilarious Richard Ryder will host Winter Woofstock’s main stage on Sunday with talented judges:
Sarah Hillier, Andy Hull, Matt Baram.
Stupid Dog Trick Contest: Saturday’s winner will return to compete with Sunday’s finalists for the grand prize package.
Ms & Mr. Canine Canada Contest: Saturday’s winner will return to compete with Sunday’s finalist for the grand prize package.
Best Costume: Saturday’s winner will return to compete with Sunday’s finalist for the grand prize package.
Saturday: “Wiener Dog Race” where dachshunds race towards the finish line vying for the prize: a whack of Bullwinkle pizzles (chemical-free dried bull penises). Made from free ranging Brazillian cattle. Yum,yum…
Sunday: “Running of the Pugs” where these little chubby guys will snort their way to the grand prize: a year’s supply of Bullwrinkle pizzles. Whoopee.
