For specific performance times for Bluey & Bingo, and our other amazing ADVANCE™ Stage talent, please see the timetable, below.

The ADVANCE™ Stage presented education and entertainment to help fur-parents raise healthy, happy dogs.

Knowledge is power when it comes to fostering a healthy, happy dog and like us, our stage sponsor ADVANCE™ is on a mission to enhance pet wellbeing. This year, we invited some of Australia’s most qualified and trusted vets and companion-animal experts to be part of our Festival! Visitors LOVED the paw-some home-grown Aussie line-up on the ADVANCE™ Stage, MC-ed by Brodie Young.

Dr Katrina Warren and Kelly Gill, along with The Wonderdogs, presented an interactive workshop every paw-rent interested in the health and wellbeing of their pet should hear.
