We’re back and we’re bigger than ever!
Last year’s event was a huge success for all of the charities and rescue organisations involved.
Despite a few minor hiccups, the day went well and the feedback from all of you was fantastic!
Because of that, this year we have invested more in the festival to make it even bigger and better.
There’ll be more shows and games, more activities, more trade stands and demonstrations and lots more for the kids too.
For detailed announcements of what’s on keep an eye on our facebook page, where we’ll be keeping you all up to date with the cool stuff as and when we book it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, we are actually asked this every year, and yes we do have a little bit of a giggle about it. You are more than welcome to bring your dog to the Isle of Wight Dog Festival. We’re actually quite fond of dogs, believe it or not!
Is there parking?
Yes, there is plenty of free parking at the event.
Is there seating?
We do provide a small number of seating areas, however, if you are able to bring your own chair we strongly advise that you do so to guarantee a seat.
Is the event accessible?
We do everything we can to ensure accessibility at the event, however, there are some issues we have no control over due to the location of the event. There are no steps, we provide a disabled toilet, we have staff on hand to answer any queries and we have a designated parking area close to the entrance gate for badge holders.
Can we bring a picnic?
Yes, we have a good variety of trade stands attending but you are more than welcome to bring a picnic with you if you’d prefer.
Can we travel by bus?
Yes, the number 8 bus stops right outside the event.
Do we need tickets?
No need for tickets, simply turn up and pay at the gate.
Please keep in mind that whilst we do try our best to minimise any potential issues, this is an outdoor event and the ground may be uneven in places. Sensible shoes are a must.
Also please be aware that in accordance with our event insurance and for everyone’s peace of mind, all dogs must be kept on a lead during the event (with the exception of those participating in a game/activity in a supervised area).
