Schedule and location

2021 information to come.

Visitors of all ages will enjoy interacting with Siberian sled dogs when Husky Heroes returns to The Morton Arboretum.

Guests can watch demonstrations of husky sled-pulling and skijoring, a winter sport where the dogs pull a person on skis. Children and adults can visit the dogs and sled teams, inspect equipment, and have their pictures taken with the rigs. In addition, information will be available about husky adoption for those who fall in love with these canine champions. Please visit the Adopt-a-Husky website for more information.

This event is fun in all weather! If there is not enough snow, the dogs are still able to pull the sleds on wheels. Be sure to dress for the weather, this event is entirely outdoors.
