*** Due to COVID-19, this event has been cancelled. We are hoping to reschedule for late winter!
Hello BMDCGTC! It’s time for our annual Winterfest! COVID won’t stop us, but we do have some additional guidelines to follow for this year’s event.


Winterfest is an off-leash event at a private, 5 acre fenced in home. Members and prospective members get together to eat, drink, and watch a whole mess of Berner’s play!


Any current member or prospective member may attend the event! Significant others and children are welcome.


  1. If you have exhibited any symptoms of COVID, or have come into direct contact with anyone who has been confirmed with COVID, we ask that you please stay home.
  2. Masks must be worn over the nose and mouth unless eating or drinking, and attendees must maintain a distance of 6 feet from those that are not part of their household.
  3. Because this is an off-leash event, if your dog has issues with recall when playing with other dogs, we ask that you please leave your pup at home. We are trying to minimize situations where multiple people may have to step in close together to break up rough play.
  4. No females in heat or intact males over 12 months of age.


  1. Pot luck – It’s not required, but if you’d like you can bring a dish of your choice to share. Any dish will do!
  2. Silent Auction – This year’s auction proceeds will go to Kris Osojnicki, whose husband passed of COVID. If you would like to donate an item or service for the silent auction, please reach out via Facebook Messenger with details!
  3. Dog Toy Drive – It’s time to clean out those doggie toy chests! All items collected will go to Twin Cities Pet Rescue. For guidelines on what can be donated, please see this website:
  4. Member Meeting – Members will vote on club business, including voting in new members!
