Festival of All Things Arts

Pet Policy

No Pets at ArtsWells Festival 2019! 

For the safety of our festival-goers and natural wildlife, no pets are permitted within the ArtsWells Festival grounds or camping areas. This decision was made with the utmost concern for the health and well being of both dogs and participants. As fellow participants and animal lovers, we thank you for understanding and implementing this policy.


If you have a pet the best thing to do is to plan ahead and find a pet-sitter, family member or friend, veterinarian’s kennel or boarding facility near home that you have visited and feel comfortable with. Please email Sarah (sarah@imarts.com) if you need further information or have any questions. 

Here are some alternative options if you wish to bring your furry friends to the Cariboo this BC Day Long Weekend;


Camping at Barkerville

Barkerville offers accessible camping with your pets and use of their kennels, booking of both campsites and kennels are essential. Head here: www.barkerville.ca/visit-us/
