Celebrate excellent wine and food in Niagara — and bring along your best four-legged friend. The Muddy Paws Wine Festival is an awesome paws-friendly weekend in July. It’s a one of a kind occasion for award-winning wineries Vineland Estates Winery and Featherstone Estate Winery to open their doors to dog lovers and their well-behaved dogs on leash.

New and favourite wines will be available by the glass and renowned chefs will be serving delicious fare all afternoon. This weekend is a celebration of all things canine, with special events and activities at each winery. This year, a portion of wine sales will support The Bello Project and Home Hospice.

Do I need a dog to attend Muddy Paws Wine Festival?

Heck no! All you need is a love for slobbery, happy, wagging canines… and, of course, of love for excellent food and outstanding wines. So now that we’ve cleared that up – keep scrolling to get your tickets and to find out more!

Vendor Application

For the event to be a success we ask you to please abide by these common sense rules:

  • All dogs must be on a leash and controlled by a competent person
  • Children must be supervised at all times
  • You are responsible for the actions of your dog
  • You poop, you scoop

Tickets are $20.00 + HST

Ticket Sales on the day of the event to walk-in customers will be $25.00 (incl tax.)  Please pay with cash, where possible.

Each ticket includes access to the Festival area at both wineries; one glass of wine and one commemorative glass.

Tickets are valid for either Saturday July 7 OR Sunday July 8, 2018. Please specify which date you will be attending when you purchase your ticket.

Tickets are available here, on the website, until Friday July 6, 2018 at 11 pm or until we sell-out. If the event doesn’t sell out in advance (and it usually does), it may be possible to buy tickets at-the-door at both wineries. Please check in advance to avoid disappointment, tickets are limited.

Are you interested in being a vendor at our juried Market Place in 2018?

Send us an email to be put on the vendor mailing list and be the first to know when the planning gets started.

Apply to participate for either Saturday, or Sunday – or come both days for the price of one!

The Muddy Paws Wine Festival Market is dog focused and in order to ensure that each vendor has a captive audience, we do our best to offer a broad selection of artisanal products to our visitors with minimal duplication. This helps minimize sales dilution and provides a more diverse selection for our guests. Artisans retain 100% of their booth profits.
