Santa Paws Mini Christmas Dog Market - October 15

Australia's best annual Dog Market event is back with a mini Christmas market “Pup-Up”

Paws at the Park are excited to be back for their 14th doggie market event in time for Christmas, and with special guest…Santa Paws! 

The Saturday 15th October event at Country Paradise Parklands in Nerang has been made possible thanks to the ongoing support of Division 5 Councillor, Peter Young and the Gold Coast City Council.

In its six years, Paws at the Park has grown to be Australia’s largest free dog market event, has been voted Queensland’s ‘Best Doggie Day Out’ and won Australia’s ‘Best Annual Dog Market Event’. 

Having recently reached the fundraising goal of $65k for Animal Welfare League of Qld, the organisers have their sights set on raising even more to help pets in need.

Co-creators Jenna Schroeder and Lia Ferguson are thrilled to be able to bring their Christmas event back to Nerang - with a twist.

Jenna explains that “This year we’re running our Christmas event a little differently, by holding a more intimate and chilled out mini “pup-up” market. We’ve hand-selected 20 high-quality local businesses to shop from, as well as some amazing food trucks, live music and everyone’s favourite Take-Your-Own Santa photos with Santa Paws himself. 

"It’s the perfect opportunity to grab a picnic blanket, bring the family, do some Christmas shopping and chill out under the beautiful fig trees at Country Paradise Parklands.”

Highlights of Santa Paws at the Park Market event include:

✔️ Take-your-own Santa photos (with a percentage of funds going to Charity Partner AWLQ)

✔️ A selection of 20 high-quality doggie market stalls including Gold Sponsor, The Treatery.

✔️ Delicious food trucks

✔️ Live music

When: Saturday 15th October 2022, from 9am to 2pm

Country Paradise Parklands in Nerang, Gold Coast, QLD
