Posted at 10:23 AM, May 15, 2019

Milwaukee Pug Fest is a celebration of pugs, a six-hour love letter to the chunky, snorty and sweet-natured breed. Attracting more than 3,800 humans and over 2,100 pugs, pug mixes and other “smushie-faced breeds” with their owners in tow, Milwaukee Pug Fest is the largest pug festival in North America! Joining us with all the details on this weekend's festivities are event volunteers Deanna O'Connell and Jason O'Connell.

The 15th Annual Milwaukee Pug Fest is happening Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 from 10am to 4pm at the Milwaukee County Sports Complex (6000 W. Ryan Rd in Franklin). For more information, visit
