Style Weekly is looking for the offical dog of the 804

Enter the competition to see if your dog could be the face of the River City at 804 Day


Like many Richmonders, Senior City Editor Robin’s canine brother Rosco loves to watch basketball and be dramatic about the weather.

Do you have a River City Rover? If your dog embodies the spirit of Richmond — whether through charm, style, backstory, or love of rainbow cookies — submit them to be the official dog of 804 Day.

Style Weekly is running the contest. Nominate your dog by Thursday, July 18 by filling out the entry form.

Pro tip: Eligible dogs should reside in the Richmond region and be able to attend the 804 Day festival in person at 17th Street Market on Friday, Aug. 2.

After the nominations are submitted, the public will vote for the people’s pup. What’s on the line for the top dog? They’ll get a prize from Fan Veterinary Clinic, a portrait shot by photographer Scott Elmquist, and ceremonial duties onstage at 804 Day.
