Dog Weddings at the Treasure Island Flea
The Treasure Island Flea is back once again for two days of unbelievable fun, food, and antics. This time, on August 27th and 28th, the Flea will be featuring a marvelous lineup of food trucks and cocktail slingers, but the real draw will be the theme, “Dog Days of Summer.” Already known as one of the most dog-friendly events in the Bay Area, this special edition of the Treasure Island Flea will contain some extra special qualities, like:
A Doggie Bar Crawl that offers tasty snacks for your furry companion, fun accessories to trick out your pooch, and plenty of other locally-made/sustainably sourced accoutrements that will satisfy the most picky of pets (and owners).
Before 11:00am the Flea will hold their Yappy Hour. This means that all Salty Dogs will be on offer for an unbeatable buy-one-get-one deal.
Remember the scavenger hunts of your youth? The Flea wants to help you return to those halcyon days as you and your pet search for Mr. Blue. Mr. Blue is a floppy, blue, stuffed toy that will be hiding at various places throughout the festival, offering a delightful $20 reward to any dog and owner who discovers Mr. Blue and brings him to the one of the admissions tables.
Dog Weddings are the best weddings, and the Treasure Island Flea wants to give you the chance to unite your dog to its beloved in (somewhat) holy matrimony. This event, hosted by Deluxe Vintage Trailers, is the final moment in a contest that begins on the Facebook page for the event, and will be performed at 2:00pm on both Saturday and Sunday.
If you don’t have a dog, don’t worry! The Treasure Island Flea is still the place for you to go for hundreds of vendors selling their original and handmade wares, artworks, and antiques. There will also be plenty of live music from local musicians, workshops for people of all ages, games galore, and some of the best seasonal cocktails and beer prepared for you by some of the best bartenders and brewmasters in the state.
The Treasure Island Flea is held on the Great Lawn of Treasure Island, in San Francisco proper. There is a $3 entry fee.
