Are dogs allowed into the Festival?
We love our dogs too! But No! With the obvious exception of Certified Service Animals, please leave your dogs at home. The backstory on this policy is that, years back, we allowed dogs and experienced several dog fights on the grounds as well as a child that was bitten by a stranger dog. We then changed the policy to allow dogs in the outdoor area but not inside the tents. Unfortunately, many patrons did not follow this rule and we had multiple exhibitors report that dogs were relieving themselves in their booths on their art and so on. So, for reasons of safety and respect for property, we finally had to make a firm policy that only service animals are allowed.
