6th Annual HOPS and HARLEY
The 6th Annual Hops and Harley festival was June 23rd in Berthoud, Colorado. 3,500 people gathered to celebrate dogs and craft beer and raise over $30,000 for Harley’s Dream for their mission to #ENDpuppymills. HUGE thank you to all the festival goers, staff, volunteers, vendors, food trucks, musicians and of course our event sponsors who make this event a success year after year.
Join us Saturday, June 23rd for the 6th 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.
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.>
