New‘bark’et Dog Festival 2019

8 June

It’s the Greatest Show on Earth, but not as you know it.

Newmarket Village’s dedicated pooch festival, New’bark’et Dog Festival, returns 8 June following the success of its inaugural year.

Taking on a new form, Newmarket Village welcomes Brisbane’s first Canine Circus, with the highly popular Dog Parade (The Greatest Show on Earth), featuring hilarious categories like The Bearded Lady (messiest bed head), The Strong Man (most muscly dog) and The Fortune Teller (best costume).

You can get your best pal’s poochy-pic taken via the event’s dedicated Pupparazzi, play in the Circus Zone complete with hula hoops & ball pits.  That’s right, Hula-ing Dogs!

Inspired by Chris Lilley’s Jana Melhoopen-Jonks (Lunatics), the event will see its own Pet Psychic, ‘Madame Dogma’ host paw, crystal and energic readings.

There are wellness talks by Mind Body and Bowl, Insta-famous pooch pow-wows with @whatenzodid and @itsyaboypepsi and Adoption Walk ‘n’ Talks with Happy Tails Animal Rescue and Hear No Evil Australia.

Dress your pet for success and peruse the cutest outfits, accessories and toys on offer at the Woof Market, featuring crowd favourites Pablo & Co. and new stalls like L’Barkery.

The event will also feature beats by DJ Deena, plenty of giveaways and prizes to be won for those who find the Golden Paw stickers scattered throughout the centre, as well as the Bone Bar and free fairy floss all day, providing treats for both pups and humans.

All dogs welcome, however, they must be on leads.

NewBARKet is a free event and open to all 11 am – 5 pm, Saturday 8 June 2019.
