Paws in the Park

Alexandria’s Biggest Animal Festival Is Back!

Paws in the Park returns to Oronoco Bay Park this October. Formerly known as Alexandria Love Your Pet Day, Paws in the Park brings together shopping, music, dining and, of course, adorable adoptable animals on Oct. 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. And best of all, all proceeds benefit animals across your community through the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria (AWLA). Join us and enjoy dozens of vendors; dining from Port City Brewing Company and Big Cheese; entertainment from Uno Dos Tres Andres and Bill Cabrera and Company; and meet animals from a variety of regional rescues. Updates are being made daily, so read more at
