At Festança we love animals! For that reason, we ask you not to bring your pets, as it is not allowed to bring them into Festival grounds, except for guiding dogs for blind people, and for those who bring a caravan, who can leave the animal in the caravan park inside Festança’s site. Walks with the animals must however be done outside of the festival’s site, and the animal cannot go to the rest of the site.
Not only have there been problems with lost dogs in the past, as well as dog fights, but also keep in mind that the sun, dehydration, noise and crowd density can increase stress and health problems for our beloved animals. For these reasons, pets are not allowed to enter. Be friends with your pet and he will thank you.
Why not to try “Pet sitting” if you have nowhere to leave him? A family member or a friend is a good idea, as well as a dog-friendly hotel if you feel the need. So, if you are coming from the coast of the country, we recommend this hotel in Marco de Canaveses, which is located about 30km from the enclosure, or if you come from the interior of the country, we recommend this hotel in Vila Real, which is located about 50km from the Festança’s site.
