The Nihonmachi Street Fair considers itself the original “melting pot” of street fairs, with many aspects of Asian-Pacific American life—and San Francisco’s cultural life—expressed through performance, tradition, art, music, food, and community outreach and service. The formula must work since the organizers estimated that over 30,000 guests participated in this year's event!

Nihonmachi Street Fair Doggie World (ONE DAY: Sunday, August 7)

San Francisco is frequently cited as one of America's most pet-friendly cities, especially dogs. It's a city with family and dog friendly experiences…and where dogs out number children. We welcome you to enter your pooch in our 5th Annual Doggie World Parade.

Doggie World will be a gathering place for the four-legged members of our community to join in on the fun. Local animal experts and adoption agencies will also be on hand to offer tips and information. Also there will be Doggie World vendors selling all a variety of items for your four-legged family members! We also welcome nonprofit organizations that provides services for animal health and welfare. Portion of the proceeds from Doggie World will be donated to local animal rescue organizations.

Some highlights at this year's Doggie World: Pet Vendors, Rescues/Adoptions, Ask the Dogtor, Parade/Wag Bags, Contest, DIY Doggie Crafts, Photo Booth.

Doggie World will be for one day only on Sunday, August 7 from 11am - 5pm in the Buchanan Mall.

Doggie World Parade will begin at 1pm.
