Suffolk Dog Day

A celebration of canines by volunteers from Suffolk for the people of Suffolk

Jul 31 2016

  • Suffolk Dog Day 2014

    Suffolk Dog Day 2014



Suffolk Dog Day is fast becoming the canine social event of the year and our 2016 event hopes to be a record breaker!

Dog Day is an annual event organised by Suffolk Community Foundation that is held in the magnificent surroundings of Helmingham Hall and Gardens. In 2016 it will take place on Sunday 31 July. 


With a focus on delivering a fantastic day out for all the family, there are plenty of activities to keep children busy and the ticket price includes entry to the fabulous Grade II listed Helmingham Hall Gardens.


All money raised on the day is for the benefit of people in Suffolk, Suffolk Dog Day is the county’s largest event of its kind and the jewel in the crown of Suffolk Community Foundation’s event calendar. Money raised reaches those most in need via grants made to local charity and community groups and the entire event is organised by an incredible group of volunteers whose single minded and passionate commitment has led to the event becoming the must go to ‘dog loving day’ of the year.


Tim Holder, Development Director from Suffolk Community Foundation said, “It’s simply astounding what our team of volunteers have created with this event. Who would believe that an idea that was hatched around a dining room table only a few years ago could now be making such a positive impact on the lives of those most in need and that literally thousands of people simply enjoying a great day out could benefit so many."

If you would like to support local charity and community groups where you live then put Suffolk Dog Day in your diary and ask your four-legged friend to lend a paw and help you choose what they’d like to do on the day by booking their activities online in advance. All proceeds for this event go to Suffolk Community Foundation, registered charity number 1109453.
