Live bluegrass music will be performed from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will be a dog friendly guided hike (and swim) up the mountain at 11 a.m., which will take two to three hours. Also, there will be shows and competitions, including the 2 p.m. Fetch Fest at Cushing Pond. The top dog will be the one that can retrieve the most tennis balls.

Throughout the day, JD Platt and the K9 Kings will perform a mix of music, comedy, audience participation and high-flying trick dogs.

Flyball is a fast paced and exciting relay race for dogs. The course is comprised of four jumps, a spring-loaded box and is 51 feet in length. Each dog must run down the racing lane clearing all four jumps, trigger the box, catch the ball and return back up the lane over all the jumps to its handler.

Yappy Hour begins at 4 p.m., when there is a dollar discount on all drinks.

On the Main Events Stage, The Cherry Pickers play from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dusty Green Bones are onstage from 2 to 4 p.m., and Trout Steak Revival picks from 5 to 7 p.m. The South Shore band Bison will play throughout the festival on the second stage.
