Rosny Farm: Dogs Day Out

An action packed day is promised for the entire family. In the past, the Dogs Day Out celebration of all things canine has attracted more than 1,000 participants to Rosny Farm. There will be competitions, exhibitions, look-alikes and parades, sales of food and drink and live music to enjoy. The entertainment is provided free of charge.

Relevant business owners will be providing information to patrons and the Council will have their own display. Potential dog owners can chat with staff and volunteers from the Dogs’ Homes of Tasmania.

Poochibald Art Prize

School-age artists can submit a painting or drawing of a dog for the prestigious Poochibald prize. The entry can feature any dog… the artist’s own dog; a dog they know or even a famous dog. Think Scooby Doo, Pluto, Snoopy, Lassie or maybe even Santa’s Little Helper, the rescue-greyhound from The Simpsons.

Great prizes will be awarded in both the senior (12-16 years) and junior (under 12 years) sections. All work will be on display in the Schoolhouse Gallery at Rosny Farm for Dogs Day Out and the exhibition will remain until Saturday 11 October.
