The Donkey Sanctuary Leeds Summer Fair 2017

The Donkey Sanctuary Leeds Summer Fair 2017


The biggest fundraising event of the year at our Donkey Assisted Therapy Centre in Leeds.

A great family day out with: our Donkey Interactive Yard; trade and charity stands galore; children's entertainment, including our now infamous Donkey Sanctuary bouncy castle; food and drink, including a special guest host on our BBQ; all this, plus a new twist to our Fun Dog Show!

Come along and take part in our Donkey Interactive Yard - whether you are young or old – to meet and groom our donkeys, and take away your very own commemorative photographic certificate. The Donkey Interactive Yard will run from the event’s beginning until around 3pm, after which time you can share ‘Carrot Time’ with all 23 of our wonderful donks out on the sand arena!

Bring along your family pooch and you can also take part in our Fun Dog Show. There will be six classes plus championship, each sponsored by one of your favourite donkeys, a rare opportunity to get your hands on an exclusive rosette - please see the running order to see which of our donkeys is supporting each class! We are running a mini-Dog Show this year so that we can add three Agility Competitions in the course of the day - why not show us what your favourite pooch is made of!?
