Ku-ring-gai Council will be hosting a Dogs Day Out Event on Sunday 10 April 2016 at the St Ives Showground from 10am until 3pm and are currently seeking applications for stallholders.
Ku-ring-gai is a very dog friendly area and has over 24,000 dogs registered in our Local Government Area. Council has hosted several successful Dogs Day Out Events and in 2015 we had over 40 stallholders and an excellent attendance of over 5000 people and 500 dogs.
The event will be emceed by Kaye and Brian from ‘VETtalkTV.com’. Proposed activities for the event include dog sport demonstrations, educational talks, information talks, best dressed pet competitions, dog races competitions, dog trick contest and interactive stalls. The opportunity also exists to raise money for a dog related charitable organisation.
There is no fee to attend the event; however, stallholders are required to donate goods or services to the minimum value of $100 which will be used throughout the day as prizes. Stallholders are required to provide information about the donation at time of registration and deliver it to Council’s information stall by 9am on the day. This does not apply to charitable organisations.
Stallholders are encouraged to develop interactive activities that will get pet owners involved; for example gadgets that need to be tried, products to be sampled, dog tricks to be explored – anything that is safe and fun is welcome. Stallholders are required to bring their own form of shelter, tables and chairs as Council does not supply any equipment for stall set up.
Due to the high demand for stallholders we have limited the number to 50 and applications are due by 10 March 2016. Once the applications are received you will receive notification if you have been approved.
If you are interested in being a stallholder please complete the Stall Holder Registration Form enclosed and forward to [email protected] . If you have any further questions or comments regarding the event please call me on 9424 0705.
