There is a new PAWs party tomorrow! This one features a very special concert.... for dogs! Thanks to the Canberra International Music Festival, there will be a dog-focused music session by Solomon Frank on clarinet and Niki Johnson on percussion.

Considering so many of us live with dogs, play with dogs, sleep with dogs, and even emote with dogs, is it such a stretch to think dogs could enjoy music like us? This concert will sound a little strange, and no-one is expecting the dogs to sit patiently, but it will be very amusing to witness.

Where: Haig Park (above Mort St, Braddon)
When: Saturday 30 April, 10am - 12pm

PAWS Parties are an age-friendly, pet-friendly community event run in Haig Park on the last Saturday of each month. PAWS Parties are designed to increase the social inclusion of older adults, utilising the abundance of furry friends to facilitate connection and conversation. We have staff on site to support mobility for any older adults who wish to attend the event, and have tailored our location, equipment and entertainment to be aged-friendly and to encourage communication and connection across all attendees.

For anyone wishing to attend, they can expect:
- Dog agility equipment
- Delicious coffee and pastries from Spill Ya Beanz
- Doggie treats
- Woof love goodies
- Live music
- and more!

Don't fur-get! Families are invited to enjoy the park's Haig Park Dog Agility Equipment which is available every day, rain or shine.

This event is supported by the City Renewal Authority, PAWS (Pet Assistance and Wellbeing Service) at Northside Community Service, University of Canberra and produced by Dionysus.
