Barktoberfest 2023

Take your furry BFF for a Saturday-morning browse — there'll be pet-related stalls, pups to snuggle, a cool-down station for pooches and doggos to pat.

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 14 in Carseldine, dog lovers and their furry four-legged 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 barking great levels. There'll also be a pupper fashion parade and a pawparazzi photo contest — to determine just which canine cutie friend is the most adorable.

Also on the lineup this year is canine cool-down station with pools. It is getting warm again, after all, and we're betting that your pupper also feels the heat.

Dog-focused demonstrations, pupper prizes — they're all on offer, too.

Entry is free, and live entertainment is part of the 200-plus-stall market as well.
