Salty Dog Festival: Sept. 8

Free fun for you and your dog this weekend in Goodlettsville!

Spruce up Fido and find something fun for him to show off during the Salty Dog Festival on Saturday, Sept. 8 at Goodlettsville City Hall Park.

The Goodlettsville Chamber hosts the event, formerly known as the Arts, Antiques & Music Festival. The festival’s name change comes from the founding of Goodlettsville’s discovery of two salt licks along with the uptick in families bringing their furry, four-legged members to the festival.

The free festival takes place from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., and before the festivities, you can participate in the Stop, Drop & Run 5K. The festival showcases the best in local antiques, art and crafts.

Expect live music throughout the day, a Kids’ Zone with several activities, a dog costume contest, a petting zoo, food and more.

The park is located at 105 S. Main St., Goodlettsville. Learn more at 615-859-7979 or
