Everyone’s invited to bark in Bryant Park for the second annual Paws on Parade: A Celebration for Dogs and Dog Lovers!

The AKC Museum of the Dog is excited to work in collaboration with Bryant Park to bring the dogs of NYC together for a tail-wagging good time. The event will feature collective art making, lively performers, fun photo-ops, adorable dog awards, delicious food and drink vendors, and a celebratory prance around the park. And—for one day only—leashed dogs will be invited to join their people on the lawn to sit, stay, and lounge. Spectators are encouraged to play “Dog Bingo” to see how many different kinds of dogs they can track throughout the event. Bingo cards will be available at the AKC MOD booth and can be submitted into a drawing for prizes including membership to the AKC MOD and Museum swag bags.

In order to participate in the parade, you must register your pup. All registrants will receive a special item for their dog from the AKC MOD and the first 100 registrants to check in at the event will receive some extra swag from our partners. Please see the schedule below for some of the details. More will be added as we get closer to the event!
