Party with your dog at Sociable's pet-friendly music festival

'Rock 4 Rescues' ticket sales will benefit local animal rescue organizations.

It's your dog's turn to party this weekend.

Sociable Cider Werks is hosting a first-of-its-kind, pet-friendly music festival charity event on Sunday that promises to be "one of fall's best dog-friendly events."

Rock 4 Rescues is a day full of music headlined by Australian duo Atlas Genius and featuring local bands Step Rockets, Mark Mallman, CEDAR, and Dan Rodriguez. 

The festival also features a pack walk, demonstrations from MN Disc Dog Club, an arts and crafts fair, animal-related vendors, live mural painting, local food trucks, a beer and cider garden, and a silent auction featuring custom-made dog houses.

And if you're thinking about adding to the family, adoptable pets will be on site for meet-and-greets. Here's the full schedule of events.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to four local animal rescue organizations: Secondhand Hounds, Save-A-Bull Rescue, Twin Cities Pet Rescue and Wildlife Rehabilitation Center of MN.
