WHEN & WHERE

October 8-10, 2021
Caledonia State Park, Fayetteville, PA

ISSDC/Mid Atlantic’s Annual BarktoberFest
101 Pine Grove Rd, Fayetteville, PA 17222

Some of our scheduled events include, but are not limited to,:

  • Two (2) Shiloh Shepherd Specialty Shows
  • CGC, TDI & Temperament Testing
  • Silent Auction
  • Catered Lunches

We have rented a pavilion along with a wide expanse of field at Caledonia State Park near Fayetteville, Pennsylvania for the ISSDC/Mid-Atlantic Region’s Annual Barktoberfest Event.

We have SO MUCH FUN planned for everyone this year. Like past Barktoberfests, this will be a casual weekend to hang out with friends, love on plenty of Shilohs and Shilohs-by-association, and earn some show points. We’ll hold a conformation show on Saturday morning and the second on Sunday afternoon.

We do encourage participants to pre-register so we can estimate how much food and drink we’ll need.  Follow the links below for detailed information about the show.

And lastly, we’d like to offer a silent auction with the proceeds going to the ISSDC/Mid-Atlantic Holter Program and other endeavors that support the ISSDC’s mission. If you have a basket or gift you’d like to donate, please let Marti or Rhonda know so we can keep track and thank you enthusiastically for participating.

Keep checking back as some details and/or schedule of events may change. Any questions? or if you wish to volunteer, please contact us:

please note: no cars are allowed on the show grounds or access road; parking is available in adjacent lot.
