The 7th Annual Cardiff Dog Days of Summer – hosted by the Cardiff 101 Main Street – will take place on Saturday, Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The community and their canine friends will come together between Aberdeen Drive & Newcastle Ave in Cardiff-by-the-Sea for contests, games, a silent auction, vendors and food. Nearly 10,000 people and dogs are anticipated to attend this year, as well as over 130 vendors. Festivities include a blessing of the dogs, dog contests, live music, an agility course sponsored by K-9 Connection, a doggie photo booth, a doggie beach and a kid’s zone. Proceeds benefit local animal charities and Cardiff 101 Main Street, which sponsors other community events throughout the year.
