Dog owners and dog lovers can take a “paws” for the cause at the second annual Woofstock Music Fair at Islamorada’s Founders Park, mile marker 87.

The far-out festival is set for Saturday, March 19.

Highlights of the free-admission event include a blessing of the pets for those who bring their favorite four-legged friends, K-9 search and rescue demonstrations and an animal adoption village with local rescue groups.

Canine competitions include a talented/trickster dog contest and agility performance with audience participation. Expected to appear at the event are the <a href=””>Ultimate Air Dogs</a>, one of the premier dock jumping organizations in the country.

Don’t miss the Rescue Me Mutt Strut, where dogs up for adoption put their best paw forward to land a “fur-ever” home.

Attendees can find products for pets and people at vendor booths, while other attractions include live music, food and beverages.

Gates are open from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Leashed, friendly and well-behaved dogs are welcome.
