With Corgis and Costumes, Corgi Con Returns To Ocean Beach

This Saturday, expect corgimonium: NorCal CorgiCon is bringing hundreds of the stumpy-legged dogs and their human friends to Ocean Beach (between Stairwell 21 and Fulton St., across from Beach Chalet). 

The wildly popular event, which happens twice a year in June and October, has corgis running races and dressed up in their finest for a costume contest. This time, corgi lovers can also expect new additions to the Corgi Con program, including an agility contest, vendors offering corgi and dog-related goods, and an attempt to spell out the word “corgi” for the group photo at Ocean Beach. 

“We decided to mix it up a bit,” explained Cynthia Lee, the founder and a member of the Execucorg team behind Corgicon. “Those two, the costume contest and the race, had been our staples.” 

The NorCal Corgi Con started back in 2013 as an informal gathering of dog lovers and their perpetually cheerful dogs. Now, it’s ballooned to include over 800 corgis, with people flying in from all over the United States and beyond to attend. Lee told us that some attendees from Hong Kong and Japan were even planning their vacations around Corgi Con.
