We have a new competition arena that will be running all day on Saturday and Sunday. A full line up of entertainment in the display arena so there will always be something to watch or have a go with your dog.
K9 Aqua sports will be back again with their magnificent giant swimming pool. One of the highlights of the weekend was watching the dogs jump in after their balls, cooling off from the glorious weather we had. We have sprinklers tapped into the water system so you can hose your dog down as well as a huge marquee with fans for the dogs if the weather gets as hot again.
More pop-up shops dedicated to your best fur friend in our shopping village along with everything you need for the best weekend ever! Food, treats, clothing and toys to spoil them rotten. There will also be lots of expert advice from our professionals over the weekend, so whether you want to know about behaviour issues, eating problems or just general doggy advice you are in the right place.
Elvaston Castle has 200 acres of woodland, parkland and formal gardens so there is plenty of space for you and your dogs to explore. Walk through the woodland to the spectacular sights of the castle and the lake adorned with Swans and wildlife. Camping will be on the event ground so you are right next to all the action but in a quiet enough area where you can grab 40 winks to refresh yourself before the evenings entertainment.
The live music stage will have a whole host of artists including some of the Uk’s top tribute bands. Saturday night headliners are Oasis who will be rocking the stage along with one of the Uk’s best tributes to Queen closing the show on Sunday.
Food and drink will be brought to you courtesy of our hand selected pop up cafes with a variety of foods from wood fired Pizza, Pan Asian cuisine, pulled pork with Halloumi fries or Good old Fish and Chips plus a few other delights to keep your belly full.
