Weather Policy and House Rules

Weather Policy and House Rules

We want everyone to have a great day out at Houndwave so we need to have a few rules (and we do have regulations to abide by).


If a dog is brought into the event, it must be kept on a short leash (2m or under) at all times. We don’t have fencing in the square, so please be careful and keep your dog on a leash as we really don;t want any accidents. Please respect these rules as the park is in the middle of Adelaide and is surrounded by roads. We have also arranged that traffic around Light Square for the duration of the event will be reduced to 25 km per hour.

Please respect the park as well as other patrons by picking up after your dog. Doggy bags are available at entrance points and on the north-east and south-west corners of the square. Rubbish bins are also available.

Please only bring well socialised and non-aggressive dogs. If a dog becomes aggressive or fights with another dog once inside the event, we will need to ask the owner to immediately remove their dog from the event site.

All dogs attending must be vaccinated – if you need some information head over to our Vet Partners at Adelaide Vet


HOT WEATHER:  Houndwave may be modified if, on Friday 6th April, the forecast temperature for Saturday 7th April is 37 degrees or above. If the event is changed a notice will be placed on the Houndwave website at www.houndwave.com.au and on the event’s Facebook Page www.facebook.com/houndwave

If the temperature is over 37 degrees and we will  run the event and advise of times that dogs should not be at the event.

WET OR WINDY/STORMY WEATHER If the forecast for Saturday 7th April is for particularly wet or dangerously windy weather a decision about cancelling Houndwave will be made before 5pm on Friday 6th April. In any case, all marquees and umbrellas must be secured with pegs and or weights. and will be actively collapsed immediately if required.


Stallholders and Vendors are to remove own waste from the site – bins will be provided for general event waste. We ask that everyone attending please respect the park.

HOUNDWAVE is a Licensed event and alcohol will be for sale. It is not BYO and no alcohol can be brought into the event.

Definitely NO GLASS as this is really a hazard for all those paws in attendance.

We will have water bowls on site and you may bring your own.
