Help Us Find the Official Dog of 804 Day

Vote for your favorite now through July 25!

Do you know a Very Richmond dog that embodies the spirit of our region? Style Weekly is partnering with 804 Day: Richmond’s Biggest Block Party to find a four-legged friend to help celebrate.

Whether it’s their charm, style, unique story, or most Richmond attitude, we want to see what makes your dog the perfect candidate.

The winner will receive a prize from Fan Veterinary Clinic and be featured on, with their portrait captured by Style photographer Scott Elmquist.

Most importantly, the Official Dog of 804 Day will assume ceremonial duties onstage at 804 Day in Shockoe Bottom on Friday, Aug. 2, to kick off the party.

Get your dog in the running today and let’s celebrate the spirit of Richmond together!
