Tour de Corgi took place in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado on Oct. 7, 2023. The pup event was the 9th annual gathering that saw a large group of Corgis gather in adorable costumes at the Civic Center Park.

This year’s Tour de Corgi was themed Comi-Corg

This year’s theme was Comi-Corg, and the pups dressed up as superheroes and comic book characters. As per Coloradoan, Corgis in superhero costumes were a big hit. Scout, who came with Jorgan Denny dressed up as Robin, while Juno pulled off a “Western Barbie.” Koda dressed up like a hot dog, and Bowie came as a dinosaur. The pup event even included a Corgi named Obi bobbing apples while dressed as Superman.

The event’s history

The Tour de Corgi was founded in 2014 after Tracy Stewart saw videos of the SoCal Corgi Beach Day, and it soon became the largest breed meetup in Colorado.

While she wasn’t initially sure that people would attend, a post on her their official Facebook page describing the event quickly went viral. The first-ever Tour de Corgi event took place on Oct. 4, 2014 as Corgies walked down College Avenue around Old Town Square.

While it’s a day filled with fun, costumes, and a feeling of community, the event is much more. As per Denver Gazette, this year’s Tour de Corgi’s proceedings were donated to charities such as 4 Paws Pet Pantry, Colorado Corgies and Friends Rescue, Wyoming Dachshund and Corgi Rescue, and Bandit’s k9Care.
