5th Annual HOPS and HARLEY
A HUGE THANK YOU to the sponsors, attendees and the awesome 80+ volunteers, who helped make our 5th annual Hops & Harley such a tremendous success. The event raised $26,850 for Harley’s Dream! Nearly 3,000 people attended from 22 states and even the UK!
Join us Saturday, June 24th for the 5th Annual Hops and Harley at Fickel Park in downtown Berthoud, CO 11am-6pm. This dog friendly community event benefits Harley’s Dream and features craft beer, live music, food trucks, vendors, kids activities, and much more!
Hops and Harley is FREE to attend. Dogs are welcome on a leash. Feel free to bring a chair or picnic blanket. The park has lots of huge shade trees, but don’t forget your sunscreen!
100% of the proceeds from Hops and Harley will benefit Colorado based nonprofit organization Harley’s Dream, established in 2016 to create awareness and educate the public about the commercial dog breeding industry, also known as puppy mills.
This event was created in honor of Harley, a tiny Chihuahua who was known as the “Little Dog with a Big Dream”. Harley inspired so many people to do great things, and he continues to be the voice for the hundreds of thousands of dogs suffering in puppy mills today.
