We hope you will join us on Saturday, September 23, 2023 for the third annual Retriever Fever! Thank you to everyone who joined us at the second annual Retriever Fever, an event for dog owners to gather together.
Join us on Saturday, September 23, 2023 from 11:00 am -2:00 pm at Riverside Park- 2001 Monroe Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49505

This year we will be at the Riverside Park in Grand Rapids! This location will allow us to use the baseball field to contain the dogs and keep them safe as they enjoy running and playing! We will be on the north end of the park by the bandshell.

We will be taking a large group photo, via drone, at noon.

We would encourage you to only bring dogs that over 16 weeks old and fully vaccinated.
