Interest in Chow Fest in Southern California?

Postby lovechows55 » Sat Feb 06, 2010 8:16 am

Dear Chow Chow Friends,

Our local chow club is considering sponsoring a Chow Fest and would like to know whether there is interest in having a Chow Fest in the Orange County, California area. (This is actually my suggestion after reading about Chow Fests on this MB the last couple years and thinking about how great this would be to have in our area).

I would really appreciate your help with three things: Would those of you who would be interested in participating let me know of your interest? When would be the best time to have it? (June is one suggestion, since the weather is cooler here) And, would those of you who have either organized and/or attended a Chow Fest please send me suggestions for what activities to include in our event if we decide to hold it?

Thank you so much for your help!!!

ChowFests can be fun to do. I would suggest a core group of people (2 -4) to plan it out. Find a date when your core group can all be there to help manage the event. Plenty of advance notice so that people can put it on their calendar. Since the Chows prefer the cooler weather, it's good to plan around that. For Northern California, San Francisco provides a cool spot even though the other areas may get into the triple digits in heat. Doing a potluck for food is good if the time includes the lunch hour. A "goodie bag" that attendees can contribute stuff (treats and/or other dog related items) is fun. A goodie bag can be inexpensive (check out the local Dollar store) or more - depending on time, effort, and cost. The attendees can bring a dog treat or other item to put in the bag. Everyone goes home with a bag. Name tags are good if the crowd is big. I think most people remember the Chow names more than the owner :lol:
