DOGS AT FYNEFEST
Four-legged friends are welcome at FyneFest, with a few conditions, including registering your dog before the event.
Before you do, we ask all owners to carefully consider whether bringing their dog to FyneFest is in the best interest of the dog. As much as we try to make our annual festival a friendly, relaxed experience and want to welcome as many canine pals as possible, we know that it might not be a suitable environment for all dogs. FyneFest brings together 3,000 people of all ages, in a relatively small area, where alcohol will be consumed and loud music will be played – so please, please think carefully about whether your dog will be comfortable in a busy, loud and potentially charged environment and remember the experience at a dog’s eye-level may be quite different to your own before deciding to register your dog.
We do our best to give dogs as much freedom as possible while on site, including having their own park to run around and socialise off-lead, but at the end of the day, each owner is responsible for their own dog.
For those who joined us in 2019, we’ve taken on board feedback on last year’s dogs policy and following further discussions with local authorities we’re very happy to say that dogs will be permitted in all areas of the festival site excluding the Main Marquee in 2020.
If you’re set on bringing your dog along to FyneFest, please read the policy and rules for dogs on site below, and then click the link at the bottom of the page to register your dog.
