Dogs on leashes are permitted in Point State Park. Owners must pick up after their pets.
The Festival has large crowds of people, many children, loud noises and other dogs. Patrons are advised only to bring animals that can be well-behaved in this environment. On-site police officers have the final say on public safety and may ask owners of unruly dogs to leave. Dogs are not permitted in the Artist Market at Gateway Center due to the tight space and fragile artwork. Dogs are not permitted at indoor venues.
Guide animals are welcome at all Festival venues.
