Peasedown Dog Show to return this year at Party in the Park festival

Friday 14th April 2023 Published by Leave your thoughts

Following on from the success of previous Dog Shows in the village of Peasedown St John at the popular Party in the Park festival, organisers have announced it will return again this year!

Local animal rescue charity, Funding Animal Futures will be coordinating and facilitating an afternoon of activities for dogs at the Peasedown festival on Saturday 10th June.

Charity Director, Sally Campbell said:

“We’re excited to be returning to Peasedown St John this year. We had a lot of entries and enthusiastic dog owners at previous shows, and this year should be no different.

“Party in the Park is a fantastic event with almost 3,000 people attending. Many people like to bring their dogs for a day out, so what better way to have fun at the village’s biggest event than enter your dog into a competitive show where they can win prizes?! You can meet other like-minded dog owners too!”

Classes will start at 3pm with The Best in Show competition following soon after in front of the main stage. You can enter on the day! Classes will run until 5pm.

Peasedown Party in the Park Festival Managers, Karen Walker and Gavin Heathcote, added:

“Thanks to Sally for bringing Funding Animal Futures back to Peasedown St John this year for a fourth, highly anticipated, village Dog Show.

“People told us in previous years that they loved it, so we’re pleased to be working in partnership again with this important local charity.”

Funding Animal Futures secures the future of abandoned and unwanted animals through independent fundraising events throughout the year and making donations to rescue organisations. For more details about the charity, or the dog show email
