Canine Christmas

Canine Christmas is a pet and family friendly event held every November. Our 2018 festival was our 20th annual! This past year our Canine Christmas was on Saturday November 16th and Sunday November 17th.

Every year, dozens of local vendors come to Bishop including animal rescues, food trucks, dog groomers and trainers, as well as vendors selling pet and holiday related merchandise so you can get your Christmas shopping done early! 

This free festival features adoptions from Bishop and other rescues in the area. There is a Doggy Fashion Show hosted by the Doggy Diva where pups and their owners can take home trophies in different categories. Food trucks arrive serving shaved ice, hot dogs, BBQ, and more. Every year we also see the Doggie Fun Zone, an obstacle course where your dog’s agility and speed can be put to the test. You can also get your pet’s photo with Santa for your Christmas card and enjoy our live music performers. Mark your calendars so you can bring your families and children (furry or otherwise) to the biggest four-legged event in town!
