Goldens In Golden 2021
With its iconic “Howdy Folks! Welcome to Golden!” arch spanning its main street, Golden, Colorado is one of the friendliest towns in the West. It’s also the perfect place to celebrate one of the friendliest dog breeds in the world, Golden Retrievers. In years past, the city hosted a record-breaking gathering of Goldens on International Golden Retriever Day.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, there will not be a “Goldens in Golden” gathering in 2021.
Instead, Golden owners are encouraged to visit Golden with their Golden throughout February.
Activities to enjoy in Golden on your own, include:
A “Do it Your Selfie” Station – Bring your camera and take a photo of your pup in front of the mini “Welcome to Golden” arch at the Visitors Center, 1010 Washington Ave. Post and tag online for your chance to win prizes from KONG.
“Pup Cups & Pupaccinos” & Dining Deals – Several Golden restaurants and coffee shops are offering free pup cups or pupaccinos (whipped cream treats for dogs) with a to-go or patio purchase.
Pet Friendly Overnight Getaway Deals – Make a night of it at the Golden Hotel which is offering a $139 dog-friendly rate that includes a Deluxe Guest Room, house-made dog treats, a Golden Hotel latte mug with drink and dining credits and lots of doggie TLC including patio dining deals.
