A highly anticipated festival-like gathering of fans and community supporters of Dogecoin (CRYPTO: DOGE) has announced its initial details including date, location and some event highlights.
The event location and date was announced exclusively on Benzinga’s “Moon or Bust.“

The venue features a children’s playground, splash pad, basketball court and other family-friendly activities.
Dogepalooza will be split into two time tiers with the 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. covering the family-friendly portion and the 5 p.m. to 10 p.m being time for adults “to let their hair down and party like it’s 1999!” according to festival organizers.
