Greyhounds in Gettysburg®, or GiG as it is affectionately called, is a four day annual event full of vendor shopping, educational seminars, social activities, and more! Thanks to the dedication of countless volunteers, GiG has become the largest greyhound reunion in the country with more than 1,000 sighthounds and their people arriving in historic Gettysburg the last weekend of April from all over the globe.
In 2013, Nittany Greyhounds took over coordination of Greyhounds in Gettysburg® and continued the event started in 1998 that was designed to raise awareness and support greyhound adoption efforts. All proceeds from the event benefit greyhound adoption activities and no member of the planning committee or volunteer receives any compensation.
Most of our events, including vendor shopping and seminars, are centered around the Allstar Family Fun Center, located at 2638 Emmitsburg Rd, Gettysburg, PA 17325. Other activities are located at off site venues kind enough to host us and our dogs. For a list of all venues and addresses, please see our schedule or event booklet.
The town of Gettysburg is teeming with history and has many resources available for tourism and education.
