The 3rd annual Texas Corgi Roundup is scheduled to begin November 8, 2019, for two days of meet n greets, a live DJ, corgi contests, and races! There’s also the possibility that adoption and care connections will be on-site for those who are interested in making a home for this popular dog breed. In addition, the event will be fundraising for Wyoming Dachshund & Corgi Rescue and Queen’s Best Stumpy Dog Rescue. The Central Texas Bark Park in Temple will set the stage for the opening night, from 6 – 9 p.m., at 4320 Lions Park Rd. in Temple. Free pizza will be available to those in attendance (while it lasts) during this wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and greet the corgis.

On Saturday, November 9, 2019, the Texas Corgi Roundup will take over Lions Park which will be closed to the general public from 9 a.m. — 4 p.m. Corgi friends and lovers will gather to enjoy their time with these lovable animals and also to raise money for the two dedicated rescues noted above. These sanctuaries help to rehabilitate corgis from all over Texas, and the 2019 event fundraising goal for their organizations is $10,000. And 100% of family registration fees for this event will be donated.

Event admission is a $20 donation per family, with online pre-registration only. Those who wait to register on the day of the event can do so at the cost of $40 per family. There is no limit to the number of people in your family. Online registration will be open on the event website. Corgi contests such as Best Costume and Hot Dog Bobbin’ (a fan favorite where corgis compete against each other bobbing for hot dogs in a tray filled with water) are among some of the favorites. There’s also Best Momo (for best corgi butt?!) and the addition of the Stumpy Jump, whereby the corgis compete for highest agility pole jump. Not only that, but the corgi races are also a popular annual attraction.
