Paws For A Second, Brisbane Is Getting A Dog Festival!

Newmarket Village’s dedicated pooch festival is back for another year! The NewBARKet Dog Festival is the ultimate dogs day out, filled with food, activities and Brisbane’s first ever Canine Circus featuring the highly popular dog parade!

On the day, get your pooch’s photo taken by the event’s pupparazzi, play in the circus zone complete with hula hoops and ball pits or check out the many market stalls including our favourites, Pablo & Co, Hugo’s Ice Creamery and L’Barkery.

There will be wellness talks by Mind Body and Bowl and Pet Psychic Madam Dogma will host paw, crystal and energy readings for your furry pals. A-list guests will include Insta-famous pooches @whatenzodid and @itsyaboypepsi.

At 1pm, the parade will kick off with prizes up for grabs for The Bearded Lady (messiest bed head), The Strong Man (most muscly dog) and The Fortune Teller (best costume), along with many more. Make sure you register your pooch in the parade beforehand for the chance to win!

With music by DJ Deena, plenty of giveaways and treats for the hoomans too, it’s an event you won’t want to miss!
