Calling all Chicago dogs and dog owners! On Saturday October 29th, from 1-4pm, bring your dressed up pup to participate in the annual Irish Nobleman Halloween Celebration!

Well known for going all out with seasonal decorations, Irish Nobleman Pub is the number one Halloween event and photo opportunity backdrop, complete with a fun family and dog friendly event! This year’s proceeds will benefit local Chicago rescue group, Be Fido’s Friend, a shelter-less, volunteer run non-profit.

What to expect?

The official event runs from 1-4pm, but you are welcome to arrive early or stay later. The do not miss, Pup-Parade is at 3pm. Additionally, expect costume contests, numerous must have photo-ops, and FREE soft serve ice cream for the kids.

Irish Nobleman Pub’s Halloween decorations top-notch. Watch out for fun “scary” surprises for the little ones, lurking around every corner, including many 12′-15′ animatronics & inflatables inside and outside for the kids (and the big kids at heart). The restaurant is family friendly, open from 11am-3am, with an 100% dog friendly patio that is Astroturf lined and comfy for any pet’s feet year-round (unlike hot pavement in the summer). Complete with water bowls, whipped cream pup-cups, doggy ice cream for purchase, and a permanent dog treat station stocked with milk-bones for patio attendees and neighbors to visit for a snack on their daily walks. A local vacation for fur babies? Sign them up!

Food & drinks for the humans are available for purchase, but not required to participate in the event or mingle. Several local business, including Chicago Bar Shop and Irish Nobleman Pub, have donated some seriously awesome items to raffle off. A suggested donation box will be available for those who wish to help with fundraising efforts for the rescue group. 100% of donations and raffle proceeds will go to Be Fido’s Friend 501c3 non-profit rescue group.

This is not the first time Irish Nobleman Pub has teamed up with a rescue, animal welfare project, or Be Fido’s Friend Rescue, but this year is unique.

Many rescues are facing new challenges. Homeless and injured dogs are increasing at unprecedented numbers, while overall volunteer and donations numbers are down.

“Many [rescues] are flooded with post covid-19 pandemic pets that people adopted while they were quarantining or working from home and surrendered upon returning to work. Paired with a record high rate of owner surrenders due to covid-19 financial hardship, job loss, pandemic unpaid time-off, and even loss of their homes- rescues are spread thin trying their best to help as many innocent pets as possible.”

Be Fido’s Friend is a 501c3 non-profit rescue that has been saving dogs since 2011. 100% of donations and raffle proceeds from this event will go directly to Be Fido’s Friend. Come to the rescue, and have a boo-ti-ful time this weekend celebrating Halloween!
