There comes a time in the life of a puppy when they become a dog.

Join not for profit Value Culture and photo experience company SnapFiesta for an interactive, art experience on November 12th & 13th at 1506 Haight St. off the corner of Ashbury. Smile and say "Treats!"

The Bark Mitzvah? Don’t dogs deserve to experience an ancient Jewish ritual, to be recognized and celebrated as adult dogs in the community, just like any human can. Yes.

The activation is free, but if you would like to skip the line you can purchase a VIP pass (Very Important Pup) for $36 in advance, $40 at the door. If you do not have a dog a simulation will be provided for you. Souvenir poster for sale printed by The Haight Street Art Center. Pooch families go home with a certificate of Bark Mitzvah and Bark Mitzvah photo portrait.

To be inclusive as possible, the first hour on Friday will be devoted to cats and other domesticated animals that would like to participate.

Thank you to our promotional partner Muttville Senior Dog Rescue, and The Haight Street Art Center for printing souvenir posters.

Please bring Pooches who behave and mind their poop. One dog family at a time will be allowed inside the experience. Please be patient with the process as we are working with dogs as well as humans. Please avoid bringing dogs with severe behavioral issues. We love them too, but respectfully ask that you leave them in the comfort of their own home.

By entering the space you agree to allow Value Culture and SnapFiesta to use the content being captured at the event in promotional and Bark Mitzvah related uses.
