Dog Days

Bring your pooch to the park and have a dog-gone good time for Dog Days of Summer at Principal Park!

It's game time! The Iowa Cubs will be playing the St. Paul Saints, as you and your dog get to enjoy the game with other dogs and dog lovers from seats in our pet-friendly reserved section. The game is at 6:38 p.m. (gates open one hour prior at 5:38 p.m.).

Dogs attend free with paid human admission. Each dog will receive a bandana and the opportunity to be involved in the dog parade on the field before the game begins. And check out the ARL table near the dog seating section to get your dog their very own Frosty Paws!

PLUS - 100% of the proceeds from tickets sold through the ARL is donated back to the pets in our care. 

We have a limited supply of tickets, so get yours while they last. Tickets are non-refundable.
