Woof and Roll 

Rockin' out isn't just for humans. Canine-friendly Woofstock rock festivals are gaining popularity across the continent, the largest of which is held each year in Canada. This year, Memphis pooches can enjoy local rock and blues at the city's first-ever Woofstock in Overton Park on Sunday, September 28th.

Intended as the local closing party for the fourth annual Tennessee Week for the Animals, Woofstock will feature live music, crafts, food, and fun for dogs and their human companions.

"You can't bring your pets to the Cooper-Young Festival or Memphis In May, but here you can have music, art, and your dog," says Michelle Buckalew, editor of Animal World and one of the event's organizers.

The Memphis Blues Society, Randy Haspel, Guy Venable and Steve Earnshaw, Groundpseak, and eNeRGy D will share the open-air stage near Rainbow Lake.

The event also will include pet adoptions from the Memphis Animal Shelter, a pet photographer, and a silent auction featuring gift certificates from local restaurants, art, and autographed celebrity items.

Woofstock, Sunday, September 28th, noon-5 p.m. Free. Overton Park, Rainbow Lake (1-877-454-0807).
