Attention all doggie owners!

Come check out the HOWL-O-WEEN Dog Costume Contest at Ventura Harbor Village on Saturday, October 28th at noon! Space is limited to the first 70 dogs. Pre-registration is highly encouraged (check back here soon for the online sign up form) – we may accept a limited number of walk ups day-of on a first come first serve basis until we reach capacity. Every single registered dog that participates gets a small goodie bag of pup prizes, plus 5 lucky dogs will take home grand prizes if they win their category! There will be a professional photographer onsite!


October 20th – Pre-registration open at 11:00am (check back here for the online sign up form!)

October 28th – It’s show time! Head to Ventura Harbor Village for the contest in person. Registered participants check in on the MAIN LAWN (new location) to receive your competition number. A limited amount of “Day-Of” sign ups will be taken on a first come first serve basis too!


Just for signing up & bringing your costumed dog seaside, you’ll get goodies. Every single registered pup participant gets:
– A treat bag from Ventura Pet Barn
– A pup-cream (special dessert made for dogs) courtesy of  Coastal Cone
– Doggie Owners get some scooby snacks (for humans)


If you are looking to take a top grand prize home too, focus on one of the categories:
Best in Show | Spookiest | Most Sea-Worthy | Most On-trend | Most Creative


Five lucky winners who take the top spot in their category will receive:

 – A HOWL-o-ween Blue Ribbon
