The Music City Pugnic, a first for Nashville, has been set for May 21 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the front lawn of Trinity Presbyterian Church, 3201 Hillsboro Pike in Green Hills.

“To those of you who have been lucky enough to be in the company of a PUG know how incredible they are,” explained Finnbarr, a popular pug who is organizing the event. “But for those of you who haven’t had the chance, your luck it about to change. All are welcome to attend the Music City Pugnic, a picnic for pugs and the people who love them.”

Finnbarr said he hoped to get as many pugs in one place as he can, but he added that all small dogs and gentle large dogs are encouraged to attend.

There is a $10 dollar suggested donation to participate in the Music City Pugnic and all children get in free. All proceeds from the event will go to South Eastern Pug Rescue, an organization that helps homeless and abused Pugs.

The event will include a silent auction, various contests, health and wellness classes, music, prizes, never seen before pug agility, fun vendors, food and PUGS!

Finnbarr is also looking for sponsors and volunteers for the event. If you’re interested you can call 615-335-1740 or email Finnbarr at [email protected].

“Out and About Newspaper” is proud to be a sponsor for the event. For more information visit www.Pugnic.com.
