The Meadow Fresh Dog Derby

15 August

11 AM - 4 PM

The Meadow Fresh Dog Derby is BACK and is the perfect opportunity to get up close to some doggo action and take a few cute videos for the 'gram!

Back for the 46th year in a row, you can showcase your dog handling skills as you traverse the mountain in either our Country Dog, Townie Dog or new for 2020, a KID division.

This will be an amazing day for family and friends to spectate and take part!
