Welcome, dog-lovers! The Colorado Scottish Festival welcomes many people with English, Scottish, Irish and Welsh breeds to join us in Snowmass Village. And if your family’s furry, four-legged friend is not a breed of the British Isles, come anyway! The Festival is dog-friendly!
Meet other dog-lovers, watch as dogs of the British Isles parade at the noon-day ceremonies both Saturday and Sunday, and meet dogs from rescue shelters.
Best of all, bring your pet to the Traditional Celtic Kirkin (churching) of the Tartans at 9:00 Sunday morning.
We’ll be having the only Blessing of the Dogs ceremony at a festival in Colorado!
Snowmass Village Dog Information
In the mountains, dogs left inside a vehicle can easily overheat. The sun can be intense and heat up the inside of a car in a short period. Animal Services officers have had to break into cars to pull out dogs that are severely heat distressed. Please consider bringing the following to protect your pet:
· SUNSHADE for your windshield
· BUCKET of WATER that will not SPILL, but provide water for hours
· Leave NUMEROUS VEHICLE WINDOWS OPEN
· Leave NAME AND CELL # on your car dash in case of emergency
Snowmass Village has a leash law, a barking ordinance and a litter ordinance. Contact Snowmass Village Animal Services with any questions or concerns.
