Get set for a right royal knee’s up! Dogstival, The Coolest Dog Show in town is back with a special Jubilee edition on the 4th & 5th June 2022 at a stunning new regal venue of Broadlands Park, Romsey!
As ever, Dogstival will be bringing festival go’ers the ultimate weekend crammed full of quirky, cool and hilarious canine approved entertainment. This special Jubilee edition and, the nation’s only dog festival celebrating the Queen, you can expect giant doggy Barkingham Palace street parties and huge regal canine thrones, ideal for a spot of regal relaxation.
Brand new for 2022 and kicking off the celebration party vibes is Stand-Up Canine Comedy with the Barking Mad Comedy Club. The line up includes dog-loving comedians Adam Bloom and Russell Hicks, who’ve graced stages at the Edinburgh Festival regulars, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and BBC’s The Stand Up Show. With more announcements to follow, the comedy line up joins Dogstival’s wider entertainment offering of live music, street performers and Vintage Funfair, which will offer delightful views of the River Test from the giant Ferris wheel.
In homage to one of the most traditional ways to celebrate The Queen’s landmark anniversaries, The Jubilee Tea Pawty will be bringing a little slice of London to Dogstival, so dogs can enjoy a very British Afternoon Tea experience with their furry friends, courtesy of the Wyld Cub and The Four Legged Foodies.
As well as the Jubilee Tea Pawty, guests will also be able to enjoy all kinds of glorious food – a much-loved part of Dogstival’s past and present. Doggies can chow down on Poocharoni Doggy Pizza, raise a glass of pawsecco and baked goodies from the Pop+Bark Pupuccino Bar, as well as every canine treat imaginable. Meanwhile, their human companions will be able to enjoy locally sourced food and drink and get in the Jubilee celebration spirit with beverages from the giant London Bus Bar. Festival go’ers will also be able to shop ‘til they drop at over 140 independent stalls selling everything and anything for a dog’s look, tastebuds, lifestyle, fun, health and wellbeing!
Expect four-legged activities galore that includes Barkour, Dogstival’s twist on parkour, where pups can navigate their way through an adventure playground of agility ramps, tunnels, ball pits, see-saws and more, as well as agility, hoopers and flyball. Dogs who get their kicks in water, will be able to launch themselves into the giant 10m dog diving splash pool and enjoy water-based retrieves in Dogstival’s Gundog Village area which is crammed full of six different ‘scurries’ to jump, navigate and tear around.
Considering dogs less fortunate than those enjoying a day out at Dogstival, this year’s event will support StreetVet, Battersea Dogs Home and Pets As Therapy.
