It’s time to raise the woof and let the dogs out as Carseldine Markets prepares to host an absolutely pawsome Barktoberfest! Whilst their paw-rents enjoy a traditional celebration of beers and drinks this October, fur-babies can have the time of their life on Dorville Road.
Barktoberfest 2021 will feature a flurry of exciting activities that will have tails wagging and families enjoying heaps of gourmet food, workshops and entertainment, competitions, arts and crafts, and hundreds of market stalls.
Set for Saturday, 9th October, Barktoberfest will run from 6:00 a.m.to 12:00 p.m. with highlights like the Doggo Demos, Dog Fashion Parade, and the Splash Zone from Animal Welfare League Queensland (AWL).
The Splash Zone features a special pool designed for the doggos’ waterplay. The corner will also have a rehydration station for the thirsty pups.
AWL will also set up an information corner where humans could ask about getting involved and supporting the animal charity.
Every year, the animal advocacy group helps find a home for more than 10,000 stray and homeless animals in Queensland and they’re getting behind Barktoberfest to raise awareness for their cause.
Also gracing this event is Winnie the Cattle Dog, a TikTok su-paw-star, with her furmum, April. They will be on stage for a Q & A session with furparents and fans about Winnie’s famous life on social media despite battling a congenital disease called fragmented medial coronoid process.
Meanwhile, registered guests may get a chance to win a doggo hamper from one of the sponsors, which will be drawn at 11:30 a.m. The winner must be on the site or answer the call to receive the prize.
