Interested in being a vendor at WSHS's largest outdoor event? This is our 30th Annual Barkapalooza so we have a track record of success; we enjoy 500+ attendees in nice weather and 400 even when it's raining. We will have many rescues, other non-profits, runners, walkers, adopters, supporters, and animal lovers bring their dogs to the fest. This is a fabulous opportunity for you to engage with the community and promote your business and products. We appreciate a $150 from each vendor to help offset our costs for the fest.  To sign up visit: Barkapalooza Vendor Registration or contact Chas at This email address is being protected from spambots.
