Melbourne Dog Lovers Festival, 2023
October 13 @ 9:30 am - October 16 @ 5:00 pm AEDT
Since 2013, the Melbourne Dog Lovers Show has grown to become one of the largest events in the world dedicated to educating, entertaining and inspiring dog lovers.
In celebration of our 9th ‘Show’ we have decided to change our name to the Dog Lovers FESTIVAL!
We think this title encapsulates our brand a lot better – an epic, festival-like celebration of the unconditional love we share with our best friends that pays homage to just how much they enrich our lives.
It returns from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 October 2023 at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 9:30am to 5pm daily!
The event will be bursting with attractions and it’s one of the best value days out in Melbourne as once you walk through the door everything to see and do is FREE!
* More than 800 amazing DOGS of 100+ breeds to meet over two days at Lyka Pat-A-Pooch, the PEDIGREE® Adoption Zone, InstaPooch on the ADVANCE™ Stage, the DOGS Victoria Breed Showcase. BTW, again, please don’t BYO dogs!
