Thornberry Dog Sweater Pawty

The Iowa City Parks & Recreation Department are hosting a Dog Sweater Pawty at Thornberry Dog Park on Saturday, March 6, 2021, from 1-3 p.m.

This event was previously scheduled for Saturday, February 13, 2021, from 1-3 p.m. but due to the predicted cold temperatures has been postponed to Saturday, March 6, 2021, from 1-3 p.m.


A socially-distanced dog sweater contest will begin at 2 p.m. and will include three judged categories.
- Most (P)ugly Sweater
- Most Unique Sweater
- Best Friends Costume (Dog+Human Combo)

Sweaters and costumes may be homemade or store-bought, but as always, creativity will be key!

Each dog may be entered into one category and will be registered upon entrance. There is no registration fee. A prize will be awarded to the winner of each category.

All attending dogs must be current on their rabies vaccinations and must be capable of adhering to the rules of the dog park.
