Get your paws up for Goldie Palooza 2018!

Goldie Palooza is an annual get-together organized by SoCal Golden Retriever Buddies, a community of golden retriever lovers in Southern California. The first Goldie Palooza, in October 2017, drew more than 350 golden retrievers and their families and friends to Central Park in Huntington Beach, California, for a day of fellowship and celebration to honor this gentle and beautiful breed.

On October 14th, 2018, several hundred goldens and their humans are expected to again gather in Huntington Beach's Central Park. This year's festival, run entirely by volunteers and supported by the generosity of individual donors and sponsors, will include a "Golden Village" with vendors of products and services for dogs, as well as:

  • a "Smooch a Golden" kissing booth for photos

  • Halloween Costume Contest

  • a contest for the golden traveling the furthest to participate in Goldie Palooza

  • a raffle for gift baskets

  • Goldie Palooza merchandise

  • a roped-off red carpet area for goldens and their loved ones to strut and pose

  • golden attendees and their families will walk to a large field in the park for a group photo

Guests who don't register in advance will be able to register at the event (cash only).
