• Annual Events Brought To You By The Royal Oak Chamber


  • This September, the Royal Oak Chamber of Commerce invites you to discover Barktoberfest, a fall festival for dogs and their people, taking place on September 16 & 17 in Memorial Park.  Centered around live entertainment and locally brewed craft beer, this is the most dog-friendly event in town.

    Barktoberfest encourages you to leash up your pooch pal and come out to enjoy a beer, food from a selection of food trucks and live music while you browse local vendor booths. These booths will feature everything from pet-related products to locally made crafts and options to please craft beer lovers – even help out potential home brewers. There will even be contests on stage, including a Howl-A-Ween Costume Contest and Weiner Dog Race.

    Barktoberfest is a great place to listen to music, enjoy a locally brewed beer and socialize with your best friend – 2 legged or 4 legged.

    We're looking for vendors who sell pet-related items, craft beer goodies (man cave, cool tees, brewing supplies) and Made in Michigan fun stuff. If you're interested, click here

    We're also always looking for sponsors. Click here to learn more.
