No, no pets of any kind are allowed, per Matthews Town Ordinance 91A-31.
Service animals ARE welcome.
Please make appropriate plans for your pets before leaving for the Festival; there are no places to leave your pets at the Festival. If you bring your pets into the Festival, you will be asked to remove them.
Due to the typically very warm weather over Labor Day Weekend, we strongly suggest leaving your pets at home. Please do not lock your pets in your car while you attend the Festival.
