29th – 30th September: Dog friendly weekend inspiration

Looking for something dog friendly to do in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area this weekend? Then you have come to the right place.

Read on to discover the events happening in your local area this weekend that you can go to with your dog.

Cholsey Beer Festival

Fantastic beers, ciders, live music, food and family-friendly vibes await at Cholsey Beer Festival this weekend for its 10th year.

Laurence Hall, Church Rd, Cholsey, Oxfordshire, OX10 9PP

Want to help raise money from the comfort of a beer tent? Head to Choko Beer Festival! There will be over 30 beers and ciders on offer, a BBQ and childrens entertainment to keep the whole family fed, watered and amused throughout the day. After a day packed full of local musicians, headliners Selina and the Howlin’ Dogs will be rounding off the evening with their eclectic mix of funk, rock and hip hop. The festival is a fundraiser for Choko, a community linking project which connects and financially supports residents of Cholsey with disadvantaged families living in Kodumela, South Africa.

Thame Food Festival

Annual food festival featuring celebrity chefs, free tasters and baking competitions.

10am-5pm/Sat 29th Sep 18

Thame Showground, OX9 3JL

The annual Thame Food Festival returns and this year it has expanded and moved out of the town to the Showground. It is still packed with over 175 stalls selling all kinds of food and drink, from cheese and dairy products to pickles, chutneys and oils, as well as a weekend packed full of guest chefs and bakers. Chefs include Masterchef winner Shelina Permalloo, The Bertinet Kitchen’s Richard Bertinet, and Raymond Blanc; while the bakers include three former Bake Off contestants: Howard Middleton, Jane Beedle and Richard Burr.

For those who want something more extensive than the takeaway food on sale other treats include a pop-up pub, botanical gin garden and a pop-up restaurant. With the festival’s move out of the town, the recommendation is to bring cash along as some stalls won’t have card machines. Dogs are welcome and there will be a dog show on both days. Finally there will be a free shuttle bus to and from the centre of Thame throughout the day if you fancy a wander around the town as well as taking in the festival.
