What’s On

Barkly Barks Dog Festival


Your favourite dog festival Barkly Barks is back!

The much-loved doggie parade will return with 10 categories covering everything from Best in Show to Best Costume, and closing with a ridiculously cute Dachshund Dash. 

Feel you know everything there is to know about your beloved Schnauzer? All over Lassie’s biggest rescues? Or which dog holds the Guinness world record for the fastest dog on two paws? Then get together a team for Barkly Bark’s inaugural Dog Trivia. With limited spaces available, secure your spot HERE.

Crowd favourites Awkward Portraits will return taking awkward costumed dog snaps – first in first served. 

Melbourne’s only dog-friendly food truck, Canine Wellness Kitchen will be on site to feed hungry pooches.

Obedience classes and a doggy day spa will be offered as well as pop-up stalls and live music entertainment, competitions and workshops.

You’d be barking mad to miss it!
