Snowdogs Discover Ashford: Farewell Weekend

Saturday 1 December 2018 - Sunday 2 December 2018

Come and see all the Snowdogs and Snowpups together before they run off to be auctioned to find their ‘furever’ homes!

This is your only chance to see all the Snowdogs and Snowpups together; 55 sculptures in total (plus a few Snowdog surprises) all in one iconic Ashford venue. Visit the pack out on the track!

Taking place at the Julie Rose Stadium on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December, this will be a magical Snowdogs spectacular with all the sculptures proudly displayed outside on the athletics track.

Wrap up warm and catch the film The Snowman and the Snowdog on a big screen throughout the Farewell Weekend. A children’s bouncy castle and activities will also be available and included in your ticket price.

Join in the fun, paws for thought and wave goodbye to all our beloved friends.

This Farewell Weekend is organised by Pilgrims Hospices.

Your local hospice is an independent charity that provides skilled and compassionate end-of-life care, free of charge, to patients, carers and their families. To do this, we rely heavily on the support and generosity of the local community in east Kent. It currently costs £14 million a year to run our full range of services; of this £14 million, we need to fundraise £11 million. By joining us at this event, all of the proceeds will be going to your local hospice charity. Please consider bringing cash for a small donation at the event.

The event is proudly sponsored by Motorline. It wouldn’t be possible to deliver this Farewell Weekend without the valuable ongoing support of Motorline, a business that prides itself on supporting the local community.
