Only well-behaved dogs in good health will be admitted. The Faire reserves the right to refuse any dog.
Dog owners shall adhere to any requests of performers, merchants or Faire staff, should an issue arise with any dog during a performance, inside a merchant booth or otherwise.
Not all dogs visiting the Faire will be comfortable with their surroundings. It is for that reason that we reserve the right to ask anyone whose dog appears to be uncomfortable or is not under control to remove the dog from the park.
Dogs are not permitted inside the Anchor & Mermaid Tavern or the Carriage House Wine Shop. Service dogs are permitted in these locations.
Failure to adhere to any of the above decrees will lead to the owner and their dog to be escorted to the gate without admission refund.
