Paws to Party

Decorative Waves


Join us for a Howl-o-Ween style Paws to Party!

Paws to Party Howl-o-Ween goes downtown this year, with a masquerade party in the gorgeous Elks Tower Ballroom! This event features music by the AzUCal Band, exciting silent auction items, a costume contest, and (of course) the ever-popular Wall of Wine. Sacramento drag artist A La Mode will be reprising her role as host of this year’s event!

A new venue brings a new format. This year’s food and beverages will be provided by the Elks Tower (no tasting stations).

While we love our pets (and yours!), this is a human-only, 21 and over event.
