Disabled Access

Dogfest are committed to making everyone’s experience an enjoyable. Please do consider that the festival is an outdoor event with grass fields and grounds with gradients/uneven surfaces, whilst we have made a great effort to provide facilities to accommodate for this there will inevitably be some areas that are hard to navigate. There will be an area for disabled Parking as close to the entrance to the event site as possible.

Visitors should make extra provisions for any weather eventuality as although we’d love to have sunshine we cannot guarantee this due to the great British weather! Dogfest advises bringing provisions from wellies to sun cream, blankets to waterproofs for sun, rain, wind and cold weather.

Why has Dogfest South moved to Knebworth?

We tried to make both Windsor and Loseley work for us, but operational circumstances and customer feedback proved them to be impractical. We also had some flooding issues in Windsor last year, and by choosing Knebworth we hope to avoid this and put on the best show possible. However, we are looking at locations for our 2018 Dogfest now, and are concentrating much of our search in the South West, as we want everyone to be able to come and enjoy themselves. Sorry again for the inconvenience, and we hope to see you at Dogfest 2017!

Can I attend Dogfest without my dog?

Yes! Of course you can still attend if you are unable to bring your own dog! Dogfest both a fantastic day for doglovers as well as dogs, and there will be plenty for you to do, including shopping opportunities, watching amazing displays, and attending informative talks which will help you with caring for your own pet.
