Barkitecture Houston Returns To GreenStreet with Designer Doghouses and a Party for Pups
Fun-filled event raises funds for Pup Squad Animal Rescue, October 17-18
Dog-lovers can once again mark their calendars for a weekend full of canine–related fun as Barkitecture Houston returns for its sixth year to GreenStreet (located at 1201 Fannin in Houston’s Central Business District), October 17-18.
The annual doghouse designing event, benefitting Pup Squad Animal Rescue, will feature one-of-a-kind, custom-built doghouses for sale – all created by teams composed of local artists, designers and architecture firms from the Bayou City. While bidding on these artful creations, event-goers also will enjoy the chance to mingle with fellow pet-lovers during special “Yappy Hour” complete with live music, raffle prizes and other free entertainment scattered across The Lawn – an outdoor entertainment and event green space located in GreenStreet’s central block.
Admission to the event is FREE and open to the public, but a voluntary donation directly benefitting Pup Squad is welcomed. Onsite event parking also is available in the attached garage located at 1301 Main Street, with entrances located at the corner of Polk and Fannin.
