FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Got questions? We’ve got answers!
We are extremely excited to be back this year, and we are glad you are excited too! First and foremost, we want everyone to know that you and your pet’s safety are always our top priority. After a lot of thought and consideration, we have found a way to put on a safe, socially-distant event that everyone can enjoy, while also raising funds for our charities. Please read our FAQs below to find out more details about this year’s event.
Do Dah Day is not in Highland Park this year? Why have you changed venues?
Because of permitting issues with the city due the pandemic, we opted to have Do Dah Day at Cahaba since the park was not an option. We recognized that the organizations Do Dah Day benefits still needed our support, and Cahaba generously donated their space for our event.
This year, the fees to rent the park from the city have deterred Do Dah Day from the parks. Our mission is to support animal charities in Jefferson County. Having our event at Cahaba allows us to put on an excellent event again this year, raise more funding for our charities, and create a safe environment for not only the human patrons, but the pets in attendance as well.
How are you handling COVID-19 protocols?
Do Dah Day will be utilizing as much outdoor space as possible on the Cahaba property to allow for adequate social distancing. Please be considerate of other people’s space while at the venue.
What are you going to do about crowd control, and do I need to purchase tickets?
We are so thankful for the crowds that attend Do Dah Day every year. YOU are what makes Do Dah Day a success. We will have two ticketed entrances to the event. Tickets will be $10 at the gate on event day. Pre-sale tickets are available for $8 in advance until 6:01PM on Wednesday, May 11th. Wristbands will be provided for return entry should you leave and come back. This will allow us to monitor the number of people coming through the gates and maintain a safe capacity. We will accept cash, credit, debit, PayPal and Venmo. Whatever your preferred payment method, we’ve got you covered! More information on our Tickets page.
Why PayPal & Venmo for tickets? Don't have an account?
We chose to use Venmo and PayPal for tickets as these are already ways that we accept money. If we used a "ticketing site," we would have to pay such high fees. We don't want to charge more for the tickets and we want to make sure we can donate as much money as possible to our beneficiaries. Don't have a Venmo or PayPal account? You can pay with a credit or debit card through PayPal as a guest, without creating an account. Be sure that you include your name in the "for" section for your donation (yes, it lists it as a donation as we are a 501c3) so that we know your name to put on the pre-paid ticket list.
I pre-paid for tickets, now what?
On event day, please bring a copy of your Venmo or PayPal receipt (on your phone is fine) with you. Your name will be on the pre-paid list at the gate. You'll just need to show us your receipt.
Where can I park?
Parking is first come, first serve and will be available in Cahaba Brewing Company’s adjacent parking lots.
Am I allowed to bring my pet(s)?
Pets of all kind are welcome at Do Dah Day! However, please no aggressive animals. If your animal becomes aggressive toward another animal or human, you will be asked to leave. NO EXCEPTIONS!
Can I bring a chair sit?
You may bring a chair to sit in at Do Dah Day this year. Please, NO tents or tables.
Is Do Dah Day still having a parade?
Not this year, but we hope to have one next year!
What is Do Dah Day, anyway?
Do Dah Day is a volunteer-led, 501(c)3 non-profit that helps provide funding to local animal charities. The money raised at Do Dah Day from our patrons, sponsors and partners directly benefits our charities each year.
