Dubai’s exciting annual dog-friendly festival is back with a bark and a wag! Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 9, as The Habtoor Polo Resort transforms into a haven for furry friends and their human companions.

And here’s the best part – entry is absolutely free!

Taking place from 11 a.m. to 9 pm, the festival promises a day brimming with tail-wagging excitement and pawsitively delightful activities for your four-legged pals.

The highlight of the day is undoubtedly the dog show at 3 p.m., showcasing the best and most entertaining canine talents. Picture your pooch strutting their stuff on the grand stage, vying for top honors in categories like bad hair day, best rescue, and waggiest tail. Prizes and rosettes await the champions!

But the fun doesn’t stop there. Feastivles boasts an array of fair games, from the classic sack race to the charming egg and spoon races, ensuring laughter and joy for both dogs and their human companions.


Thrill-seeking pups can test their agility in a hay bale race or try their paw at the lure course, perfect for the natural-born hunters among them. And for those who just want to let loose, a giant ball pit awaits – a doggy dream come true!

Amidst all the action, paddling pools will be strategically placed to keep the dogs cool and refreshed throughout the day.

For the human attendees, a festival market awaits, offering a variety of goodies for both you and your furry friend. From fashion and jewelry to swimwear and pet-friendly ice cream, there’s something for everyone.

And if you’re bringing your little humans along, the Kid’s Zone promises a fantastic time with a bouncy castle, ball pit, mega slide, delicious treats, and face painting.

For the pampered pooches, the festival has pampering pods where dogs can indulge in grooming sessions by DOOG, all for the reasonable price of AED 100.

The entertainment quotient is high, with beats flowing from a live band and DJ throughout the day, ensuring a lively atmosphere that guarantees a good time for all.

Feastivles takes place at the picturesque Al Habtoor Polo Resort from 11 am to 9 pm. Not only is entry free, but free parking is also provided for all attendees. Just a small note for pet parents – don’t forget your dog’s passport and proof of annual vaccines for hassle-free entry.
