The best dog friendly neighborhoods in Barbourville



Daniel Boone Fesitval

Each October, Barbourville celebrates the rich history of the area with the Daniel Boone Festival! The event originated in 1948 in commemoration of the signing of the Cane Treaty between the Cherokee Indians and the State of Kentucky. The week-long events include Cherokee demonstrations, parades, period reenactments, concerts, carnival rides, food and local crafts. Local artists participate in shows for photography, art, and quilts. Fun contests such as Best Beard and Best Costume bring out local talents and are fun to watch! Check the event schedule for the activities that are appropriate for sharing with your leashed and well-socialized "pet-o-neer".



Knox Street Thunder

The first Saturday of each month, from April to October, the Knox Street Thunder celebrates classics, hot rods, muscle machines, bikes, and cool cars in general. From 5 to 10 pm, the cars take to the streets for an evening of cruising! The town square is the perfect place for parked cars to pop their hoods for the mind-beagle-ing admiration of the classic engineering. The event brings tourists to town to show off and admire the antiques. The town is hoping to expand to have swap meets and more vendors as this young event grows in popularity. For now, it's a great chance to spend time with your pooch, make new friends and see sweet rides!



Dog Walk and Run for Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter

There are plenty of wagging tails at the annual Dog Walk and Run for the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter. The event is held in October at the Corbin High School in the nearby city of Corbin. You can choose to enter the 5K run/walk that is timed and on a flat course. There are categories for everyone! Runners are divided into age groups from 14 and under to 65 and older. A 1 or 2-mile walk is offered for dogs and their owners, neither of which are timed. Grab your leash and your loved ones for this healthy walk/run -all for a good cause!



Dr. Thomas Walker State Park

Dr Thomas Walker, the first frontiersman in Kentucky,  was a medical doctor who speculated in land. In 1750, he traveled to the area from Virginia, named the Cumberland Gap and built a log cabin near to the rushing river (that he named the Cumberland River). Located six miles southeast of Barbourville, he is remembered at the state park in his name. Dogs on leash are welcome to join their owners in the exploration of the lovely "bark". There are a gift shop and museum with limited hours from April through October. The park is open all year. Enjoy the beauty of the seasons and visit the replica of his log cabin!



Lickety-Licious at the Dairy Queen

Dairy Queen is a dog-friendly stop for all pooches and their owners! There are outdoor tables where you can enjoy your meal in the company of your pet. Dairy Queen features grilled and fried foods, pretzels, salads, specialty snacks and side dishes. The real treats, of course, include the cones, blizzards, sundaes, coffees, and shakes that made this place famous! You can tie your dog outside while you go in to order or use the drive-through window for your orders. Share a sweet treat with your best friend - Fido!
