Dogs and Pets at Public Events

Resolution 2016-44 allowing only service animals at City-sponsored events

Hot pavement, crowds, and other dogs can impact pet safety and well-being at public events. Effective with the passing of Resolution 2016-44 in June 2016, the City is requiring event attendees to leave pets at home to provide a safer and more positive experience for all attendees – including those pets. Service animals are allowed to accompany their owners at all Lafayette event.

  • Lafayette Quaker Oatmeal Festival*
  • Celebrate 4th of July
  • Art Night Out
  • Lafayette Farmers Market
  • Summer Concert Series
  • Waneka Movie Nights
  • Lafayette Peach Festival
