Mount Barker Festival 2023
Lost Dogs’ Disco
With bursts of bright colour rearing high into the sky, the spectacular size is the first thing you notice. Then you’re greeted by the sounds – a warm buzz of electronic music accompanied by a chorus of happy grunts, barks, howls and growls. The chatter of friends and families weaving through these wondrous shapes creates a real doggy hullabaloo. You’re at the Lost Dogs’ Disco, a place where every stray is welcome and ready to dance the day (or night) away.
Brought to you by the team behind the popular Cupid’s Koi Garden in the 2022 Adelaide Festival, this huge sculptural work brings more interactive inflatables to Mount Barker’s beautiful Keith Stephenson Park. As visitors journey through the happy pack, the beasts light up and welcome passers-by with friendly noises. The Lost Dogs’ Disco is a hallowed place where every newcomer is greeted as a fellow disco dog.
Capturing a sense of beauty and pathos, this free installation stimulates the senses and celebrates the important place of dogs in our lives and families.
There will be food trucks on offer and also other themed events and activities. Check them out at Adelaide Festival Lost Dogs’ Disco | Mount Barker District Council
