No, the Fergus Scottish Festival and Highland Games maintains a policy that does not permit any pets on the Festival grounds, excluding service dogs.This policy is enforced out of respect and safety for the animals. The Festival hosts over 35,000 visitors over the course of the weekend and the size of these crowds can prove a threat to safety of pets. Furthermore, the nature of some of the events held on the grounds requires due caution to prevent possible injury to the animals.

The Fergus Scottish Festival encourages visitors to the Festival to make prior arrangements to ensure proper care is given to their pets while attending the Festival. Please, do not leave pets unattended in parked cars, regardless as to whether a window may be open. 

Fergus Scottish Festival patrons using Festival campsites are permitted to keep their pets on their campsites only. The Festival asks that pet owners exercise the caution required to prevent possible injury to their pets and to other persons.
