On any given Saturday morning across Brisbane, plenty of pooches can be found descending upon the city's markets. Come 6am–12pm on Saturday, October 19 in Carseldine, dog lovers and their BFFs will be doing what they usually do — with the added bonus of attending the northside spot's returning Barktoberfest.
What do cute canines have to do with celebrating this time of year? Nothing, but don't let that get in the way of a dapper doggo-friendly morning out. As well as the usual food and fresh produce, an array of pet-related stalls will ramp up the fun to bark-tastic levels — plus a puppy parade and a pawparazzi photo contest to determine just which four-legged friend is the most adorable.
And, if you don't have your own pupper nipping at your heels, and you'd like to, the Animal Welfare League Queensland will also be hosting a dog adoption zone onsite. Yes, you can take your pets to this market or come home with one. Or, if you're looking to add to your furry brood, you could even do both.
UPDATE, OCTOBER 16: Due to Brisbane's stormy weather on Saturday, October 12, Barktoberfest was delayed by one week, with the event now taking place on Saturday, October 19. This event listing has been updated to reflect that change.
