BARCStoberfest 2023, Presented by MetLife Pet Insurance, is an annual, large-scale, pet-friendly festival and fundraiser that benefits the lifesaving programs and animal care at the Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter (BARCS).

The Patterson Park festival includes the annual "Ready, Set, SNIFF!" 5K Run/1-Mile Walk Sponsored by State Farm Agent Cyndi Kuhn, Howl-o-Ween Pet Costume Contest, Barkin' Beer Garden vendors, kids’ activities, and more! Fundraising leading up to BARCStoberfest raises critical funding for Maryland’s highest volume, an open-admission shelter serving 10,000 animals per year.

Our goal this year is $350,000, so please join us to raise funds for our community's needy animals.
