Do you like going to festivals, but find it difficult to leave your dog behind? Then why not go to one where you can take your pooch with you? This summer (COVID-19 and government guidelines permitting), Woofstock UK will be taking place in Devon.
Woofstock UK is a summer festival celebrating all things dog. It’s a family-friendly event, so your kids and your fur baby can enjoy a weekend of fun together. As you might expect, the festival line-up includes a lot of dog-themed attractions and activities.
What’s on at this year’s Woofstock UK?
What can you expect at this year’s festival? Well, they’re promising a host of exciting attractions. These include fun shows for your dogs to get involved in, plus a spot of dog agility and flyball. There’ll also be a shopping village full of doggy-related stalls for you to spoil your pooch with. And there’ll be some unique activities such as paw painting at the ‘Pawcasso’ tent and a doggy diving pool.
Dog lovers can also get some pet care advice from a the panel of guest speakers. They’ll be covering important topics such as dog first aid and animal behaviour.
What’s more, there will be live music performances in the evening for families to enjoy. Which the organisers have made sure are suitable for sensitive doggy ears. Of course, non-dog owning festival-goers are welcome along too!
Where and when is this year’s festival?
Woofstock will be taking place from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th August 2021, at Oldstone Farm in Dartmouth. If you fancy going, you can choose from either a weekend, daytime, evening, or camping ticket. And, if you’re looking for a more luxury experience, there is a glamping option with a variety of tents to choose from — all of which include an exclusive Very Important Pooch treat basket! Tickets and info are available from their website, here.
As you know, it’s been a tricky time to hold events. So, Woofstock will be continuing to monitor and act upon government advice to ensure safety of guests, volunteers, staff, musicians, and exhibitors. And they’ve got a handy page on how they’re planning to keep the festival COVID-19 safe. It’s a good idea to give this a read first, and drop them a line if you’ve got any questions.
Good Doggy Guide recommends checking cancellation policies before booking any tickets for events this year. If you are going out and about, it’s always a good idea to go prepared so you can keep yourself and others safe. And as with any plans to travel, check government advice and guidelines before you go.
