Guide and service dogs (certified by the BC Registrar's office) are welcome on site and must be registered in advance. They should have legally required up to date vaccinations (documentation may be requested).

Only certified guide and service dogs that are under proper care of their owners will be granted accreditation.

It is recommended appropriate animal protective gear (ear, foot, and/or eye protection) is worn during the event, as long as it does not impede the guide or service dog's work. High decibel levels near or at stages may cause permanent hearing damage to the animal.
Please be mindful of animal waste and dispose of it in refuse areas.
Individuals with a guide or service dog are responsible for and liable for any injury or damage caused by the animal.
