Known as one of the best places on Capitol Hill to walk your dog, the historic Congressional Cemetery typically only allows dog-walking privileges to members of the K-9 Corps. But “Day of the Dog” opens the grounds to the public and their pups. The event features contests, games, demonstrations, plus representatives from pet adoption agencies and shelters with dogs and cats ready for adoption. There will also be vendors for pets — and their owners, including brews from Port City Brewing Company and Atlas Brew Works and grub from various food trucks.

Saturday, Aug. 30, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Congressional Cemetery, 1801 E St. SE. Free. Visit the website for more information.
