Pet Events in Boston

Having a pet around is an ideal way to enrich our lives, and keep us active and social. They’re a reason for us to get up in the morning, to get out during the day. They make us better people. Pet friendly events combine the best of both worlds- socializing with people & pets! Here are the best re-occurring people & pet events in Boston!

1. Yappier Hour at The Liberty Hotel

 This weekly event, held each Wednesday from 5:30-8:30 pm at the private courtyard (The Yard) of Liberty Hotel yard is a great one to look forward to. Bring your furry friends and enjoy socializing and sipping on cocktails and puptinis in a beautiful and luxurious setting. Because The Yard is fully enclosed, PetParents should expect to encounter a mix of both leashed and off-leash dogs here.
