GREYT FEST 2021 - NEW DATE - OCT 23, 2021 - 10a - 5p

New format including more of a "fest" with outside and indoor vendors. Don't worry we will have a safe and dedicated place for our sighthounds within Floral Hall. Outside will offer all dogs breeds to participate in the festivities. The main entrance will allow all humans and dog breeds access to the restroom and to the photograher. The Pet Communicator, Auction items and the Paw Draw game will also be accessed by all. The majority will be accessed by all breeds. A portion of Floral Hall will be "Sighthound Sanctuary" where only Sighthounds and their owners will have access and not need to worry about other breeds, especially small breeds.

Please come and enjoy a fun time with your sighthounds and cooler fall weather.  Hopefully, the changing leaf colors will look greyt with your hounds.

We will follow CDC and Kentucky Covid-19 restrictions in place at that time.

We hope to see all the hounds and humans we missed seeing in person in 2020. We have been honored to have hounds and humans from IL, IN, MO, NC, NY, OH, SC, TN, TX,  WI, WV, and of course KY. It is greyt seeing old friends and making new ones. Hopefully 2021 will give us all a chance to enjoy another live Greyt Fest
