Bring your dog out for an amazing fundraiser in Cedar Rapids next month!

Our friends at Last Hope Animal Rescue have announced the return of Barks & Brew, their biggest fundraiser of the year. This year's event will take place on Saturday, August 20th from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at NewBo City Market in Cedar Rapids.

If you've never been to Barks & Brew before, it's a fun experience for both you AND your pup! According to the official website:

"Barks & Brew features beer and wine tasting from your favorite local breweries, live music, a silent auction tent, a bounce house, and of course... adoptable dogs! You'll also enjoy shopping with some of our favorite pet friendly vendors on-site for the big day!"

There are two different levels of tickets for Barks & Brew 2022. VIP tickets will get you a tasting glass that you can use to sample local beer and wine, plus access to live music at the bandstand. You must be 21+ to enter the VIP area, and tickets cost $45 each.

A general admission ticket will not allow you to do any beer or wine sampling, but you will have access to the silent auction tent, a variety of vendors, adoptable dog tents, and the bounce house. Tickets are $25, with kids 12 and under admitted for free. Your friendly, vaccinated dogs are welcome to attend, too!

Tater and I had a blast at last year's Barks & Brew, and we hope to be there again this year! Purchase your tickets for the event in advance HERE.
