Snowdogs unleashed in Ashford

A magical art trail hits the streets of Ashford, Kent!

Open from Wednesday 12 September, Snowdogs Discover Ashford – our fourth Snowdog Art Trail – is a free feel-good event this autumn inspired by the The Snowman™ and The Snowdog.

Snowdogs Discover Ashford 12 September – 18 November

The art trail will showcase 35 giant Snowdog sculptures designed by local and regional artists, alongside 19 small Snowpups created by local schools.

In the build up to Christmas, the free event will exhibit the town’s woof-tastic social and cultural life, create a feel-good factor in the community, and run a full programme of free events, tours, and workshops for all the family.

Each Snowdog will be auctioned at the end of the trail by Pilgrims Hospices to raise vital funds to continue to offer support where and when it’s needed for people coping with incurable illness.


You can pick up a free trail guide from the Ashford Visitor Information Office, Made in Ashford and other outlets around the town centre, to lead you on your walkies. Whilst bounding around town, you can also purchase exclusive memorabilia including a ‘Paint Your Own Snowdog’, to collect as a paw-some keepsake from the event.
