Do you have more information for disabled visitors?

DogFest is committed to making everyone’s experience 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. There will be a fee for disabled parking. Please see the parking FAQ for more information. DogFest will also have mobility scooters to hire on the day.
