Planning dog-friendly outdoor events

March 18, 2024Lauren Windle

When it comes to being dog-friendly, Jacquie’s Gourmet Catering is a butt-wriggling, tail-wagging fan!

It wasn’t so very long ago that pulling together a dog-friendly event was full of rules, with plenty of hoops to jump through. Not so anymore!

Not only have bars and restaurants across the state ( relaxed their rules for canine companions when gathering outside, so have outdoor event spaces.

We’ve been catering dog-friendly weddings and receptions, nonprofit fundraisers, birthday and anniversary parties, and corporate events --for decades. In fact, we’re pretty dog-gone (sorry) good at it.

Here are some of the lovely indoor and/or outdoor venues – some with industrial flair, others with a warm barn-like flavor and plenty of outside space -- that welcome your four-legged BFFs -- in addition to our fabulous catering services:
