The Colorado Irish Festival maintains a policy that does not permit any pets on the Festival grounds, except for SERVICE DOGS.
This policy is enforced out of respect and safety for the animals. The Festival hosts more than 20,000 visitors over the course of the weekend. 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 Colorado Irish Festival encourages attendees to make prior arrangements and leave your pets at home. Do not leave them unattended in your parked car!
SERVICE DOGS only will be permitted into the festival (only dogs are recognized as service animals under title II and III of the ADA.) Comfort dogs do not meet fit into the category of SERVICE DOGS.
