Now in our 21st year in Fort Greene Park, and sponsored by Fort Greene PUPS, the Great PUPkin is Brooklyn's largest and most outrageous dog costume contest in celebration of Halloween. Scads of dogs enter and ruthlessly compete for over-the-top prizes and the coveted Great PUPkin rosettes.

Judging of all entrants begins at the bottom of the monument stairs at 11:30 a.m. sharp!


While 80 advance registrations slots have sold out in RECORD time, walk-up registration for a remaining 40 registrants will be available on the day of the event in Fort Greene Park for a $5 donation, cash only, on a first-come, first-served basis, on the monument plaza. 

Day-of registration will start at 10:45 a.m.!

Please note: If you were one of the 80 pups that pre-registered, remember to print or bring on your phone to check in by 11:00 a.m. on the day of event. A separate table for pre-registrants will be set up on the monument plaza. IMPORTANT: If you do not check-in by 11:00 a.m., your entry will be forfeited.
