Applefest '14 in Warwick New York

Come join us for Warwick's famous annual Applefest in Warwick, NY.

APPLEST 2014 in beautiful Warwick, NY is a craft fair attended by over 30,000 people from all over the tri-state area.

GFNJ has had a booth and been a staple at this event for more than 10 years!!! We are given a special area to spread out and have dogs at our booth all day.

We need volunteers with and without dogs.
Your dog must be good in a crowd, friendly and pretty tolerant.
Last year we had some new volunteers and they were astounded by the reach of this event and how much exposure it gives GFNJ.
Even though it is a distance, those volunteers are returning!


If you are interested in volunteering with your Grey for 1 or more hours, please contact Nancy Bowden (845) 987-8663 or greygirl2008@gmail.com

As always we are so grateful to all who come.

For more information about Applefest and directions, please go to Applefest '14
