The access to the fair for dogs is allowed* according to the following conditions:

  • Small-sized dogs (up to 10 kg): Entry is allowed with a carrier/bag; if left on the ground, a leash and muzzle are mandatory.
  • Medium-sized dogs (10-20 kg): Entry is allowed only with a leash and muzzle, with the public advised to find alternative solutions where possible.
  • Large-sized dogs (over 20 kg): Entry is not allowed.

We have great respect for our four-legged friends, and for this reason, we want to emphasize that the Fair, given the crowds, is NOT AN IDEAL place for them.

*Note: The organization reserves the right to remove individuals who disrupt the normal course of the event or disturb other visitors, exhibit inappropriate behavior, or fail to manage their dogs.

Can I exit and enter again in the same day?

Unfortunately, it's not possible. The ticket is valid for a single entry, like in the cinema, at the stadium, or in similar situations, and for legal reasons, re-entry is not allowed.
