What's New To Enjoy


The weekend of the Paw Paw Wine & Harvest Festival will be here before we realize. We've been working hard all year to improve the festival and here are some of the events that benefit local charities.

Paw Paw's Doggie Dash

Join us for the first Doggie Dash.  Enjoy races and visit vendors.  If your dof is a dachshund or dachshund mix they are eligible.  Other small dogs up to 25 pounds will race their own heat.  Dogs cannot be aggressive to dogs or people and must be on leash when not racing.  The event is sponsored by South Haven/VanBuren County Convention & Visitors Bureau and will benefit the Paw Paw Village Dog Park.
