We recently shared some of the top Dog Friendly Activity based events coming up in 2020. This week we thought we’d share some of the top festival style events coming up, for those of you who like a slightly more relaxed day out. We’ve scoured the UK for what we think will be the most fun days out for all the family - dogs included!
