The North East Dog Festival - Event Update 😔 💔
As you will no doubt be aware the world is facing an unprecedented situation with the ongoing COVID 19 crisis and due to safety concerns and the unstable situation we feel we have no other choice but to cancel this year's festival.
This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we must consider the health and safety of the public, our traders, our activity providers and all of our team. We know the event is loved by so many and we are truly devastated not to be welcoming all of you as visitors and your dogs this September.
As a small team it's an event we plan year round for and know it is a highlight of the year for many people (ourselves included).
This event is much more than just a ‘day’. It's the blood, sweat and tears of some very passionate individuals who live, breath and work with dogs everyday. The event is the result of years of passion, dedication and investment to create an annual one of a kind festival for dogs.
As a small business we are grateful to those that have shown their support and we hope to bring you something even bigger and better in 2021.
Our supporters, traders and ticket holders have been emailed with the contact details we have on record regarding this announcement. Traders may get reminder emails for payment regarding their 2020 stand - please see details on the email.
Please stay safe, be kind, and give your dog a hug from us!
Dawn and Rebecca
