Boxerstock is a family and dog-friendly event, welcoming well-behaved dogs of all breeds. Sponsor C&C Fence Company will provide 2 fenced dog parks, one for large dogs and one for smaller canine attendees to roam off leash. Trainers from sponsor K-9 Coach/Bed & Bark will be available for dog training tips throughout the day. Microchipping for dogs that have current vaccinations and proof of ownership will be available for $25 per dog.

This year's musical lineup includes artists from a variety of genres to suit all tastes. The music starts at noon and continues throughout the day until 6:00 pm. Georgia singer/songwriter Davin McCoy hits the stage at noon to get the day's music started. Erik Smallwood brings his infectious, passionate sound to rock the crowd. American/folk-rock band The Deadfields will have the crowd stomping their feet. Indie rock band 10 Miles of Blue combines the talents of several musicians on the Boxerstock stage. Power pop trio Kick the Robot rounds out the musical lineup with their uninhibited brand of alternative rock. Comedienne Shelly Ryan returns to Boxerstock for her third year as emcee.

A highlight of this year's Boxerstock is an all new Kids' Village with fun activities for children, including Atlanta's tallest inflatable - a three-story slide, a costume contest for kids, trick or treating and a second stage for kid-friendly entertainment. Theatrical Kindie Rock band, Like Totally!, will be performing on the kid-friendly stage. Like Totally! sings positive and upbeat songs that are custom-made for kids and performs interactive skits to engage with the audience. Macaroni Kid will be there so stop by our table and grab some goodies for your kids and for your dogs!

Other planned events include a silent auction, a dog costume contest and a canine agility demo featuring “Georgia,” who is currently the #1 agility boxer in the country. Food, drinks and a variety of merchandise from vendors will be available for purchase. Atlanta Boxer Rescue volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about adopting, fostering or volunteering.

Atlanta Boxer Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and adoption of the boxer dog breed, rescuing over 500 boxers in its history. Some rescues require more extensive care than others. A recent rescue of ten parvo-infected puppies required significant, expensive veterinary care. Without the generosity of donors, boxers like these could not receive the care they need.

More information about Boxerstock including music lineup, directions to the event and a full schedule of events can be found at www.boxerstock.org. Tickets for the event are available on the website and at the door. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and only $5 for children under 12, students and members of the military with proper ID.
