Agfest? Mudfest!

Thousands of people braved the cold, rain and mud to visit us at Agfest.

During Agfest, 3-­5 May, Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania was out in force, spreading the word about our services, meeting clients, selling merchandise and generally making people’s day with a pat or lick from our pups.

After a very muddy start, a huge crowd flocked to Agfest, and we conservatively estimate that we spoke to over 5,000 people about Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania during the three-­day event. This was fantastic exposure for us and we enjoyed meeting so many people, hearing their stories, providing advice and sharing information.

Royal Guide Dogs Tasmania attends Agfest with a ‘whole-­of-­organisation’ approach. Our instructors, puppies, fundraisers, volunteers and public relations teams all attend, across all three days, to demonstrate the link between a donation or purchase and a service provided to a person with a vision impairment; between patting a puppy and assisting to train a Guide Dog; between story-­telling and advice-­giving.

We will continue to attend Agfest in this capacity to ensure our organisation is represented in the best possible light, to the most number of people... Despite the mud!
