Dog Bowl at the Cotton Bowl

Fair Park

Spoil your four-legged fur ball with an afternoon of doggy delights inside Fair Park’s Cotton Bowl Stadium. Dallas’ most historic football field will transform into a super-sized dog park for canines of all sizes to romp and run unleashed! (However, these City of Dallas unleashed dog park rules DO apply.)

Local dog rescue groups, clubs, and pet related vendors will be located along the sidelines with pet products and an on-site pet adoption event. Live entertainment will be on the main stage. We will also have a backdrop of Fair Park's Woofus statue for a photo op for you and your dog.

Water stations and a giant “dip and sip” splash bowls will keep canines cool and quenched, while humans will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments (including beer) and other concessions.

Admission is free. For the Dog Bowl, the City of Dallas will charge $5 for parking within the gates of Fair Park. You can also ride the DART Rail Green Line to the Fair Park Station. (Non-service animals are allowed on DART only if they are in crates.) Owners will be asked to observe all current City of Dallas Dog Park policies while at Fair Park.
