It’s “Take Your Dog To Work Day” on June 24 and in the spirit of that day Civic Plaza Presents invites everyone to step out with their canine besties to Civic Plaza for PUPPIES ON THE PLAZA from 12pm – 5pm. This provides an opportunity for pups to take a break from busy workplaces to stretch their legs, frolic in the grass and meet other canine friends. Owners can chat with awesome folks from groups like City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare and Watermelon Mountain Ranch about the great work they do for pets in the community. Puppies on the Plaza is a gathering in celebration of the great companions dogs make. Come out and show your support for the people who do great work promoting pet adoptions in our community. And if you are lacking that special someone in your life, here is the perfect opportunity to change that! Adopting a homeless pet will change both your lives and they will love you unconditionally for it. What could be better than that?

 Puppies on the Plaza takes place in the shaded area by the main stage. Come out and have lunch with us in the shade on the plaza – there will be a food truck available along with several wading pools for our four legged friends.

Stay for live music, delicious dinner and craft beer at ABQ Food Fridays from 5pm to 8pm. Dare to indulge in the delightful food from Delish of Albuquerque, the featured restaurant for the evening. You’ll also enjoy the folk flavored pop and award winning songwriting of The Real Matt Jones. There will be a selection of fine ABQ craft beer and wine. ABQ Food Fridays is FREE event. It is very family friendly and most definitely dog friendly! Afterwards stay for a free performance of Shakespeare on the Plaza’s production of Much Ado About Nothing at

7:45pm on the main stage. Seating is limited – arrive early!
