On the 6th February, HRH became the first British Monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne. So this year, Dogstival’s theme is the Platinum Jubilee - amongst lots of fun activities, you’ll also be able to enjoy a Jubilee Tea "Pawty"!

How to go to Dogstival

Dogstival takes place on the 4th and 5th of June at Broadlands Park, Romsey, in Hampshire. Tickets are available now and you should hurry to get them! You won’t want to be missing out.

Day tickets can be purchased on the Dogstival website, and are priced from £9 for kids 6-16yrs and £15 for adults. Some proceeds of the event will be donated to StreetVet (a charity who provides medical assistance to homeless dogs) and Pets As Therapy (a charity that organizes dog visits to care homes, hospitals, prisons and more, to provide people in need with companionship).

The best day of the year for dog lovers

We think supporting charities in itself is a good enough reason to go to the event, but wait, there’s more! The event is simply INCREDIBLE. There is something for everyone…and for every dog, of course. So if we haven’t convinced you yet, check out our gallery above and see exactly why you HAVE to go to Dogstival this year.
