Annual Events

Northeast Florida Scottish Games & Festival: Celebrating the heritage of our beloved Goldens, this event has always been one of our most favorite events! Northeast FL Scottish Games & Festival is held annually in February at the Clay County Fairgrounds. Take a look at some heritage photos here.

GoldenFest: Our annual GoldenFest celebration takes place at Kanine Social in Jacksonville! Golden Retrievers and their families join in on the fun and sun, reuniting with dear friends, and playing with lots of new, furry ones! The event includes a silent auction, vendors, contests and live music. Look at some of the happy goldens here.

Let’s Talk Turkey: Held in the fall, Let’s Talk Turkey raises funds to enable GREAT Rescue to continue international rescues from Turkey.
