Snowdogs Discover Ashford is Live!


Our fourth Snowdog Art Trail lands in Ashford on 12 September 2018.

35 large Snowdog sculptures have landed in Ashford town centre, for the ‘Snowdogs Discover Ashford‘ art trail. Influenced by the animation film, The Snowman and The Snowdog the free public art trail will showcase 35 giant Snowdog sculptures designed by local and regional artists, alongside 19 small Snowpups created by local schools.

A Wild in Art event, delivered in partnership with Ashford Borough Council and Pilgrims Hospices, will run for 10 weeks from 12 September to 18 November 2018, before the Snowdogs are auctioned to raise vital funds for the charity.

Ashford Snowdogs will not only exhibit the town’s social and cultural life but enhance the feel-good factor in the community. Running alongside the art trail is a full programme of free events, tours, and workshops for all the family.

Snowdogs Discover Ashford Map & App

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 to collect as a paw-some keepsake from the event.

As with all Snowdog Art Trails the ‘Snowdogs Discover Ashford’ App is available to download from the App Store or Google Play. This year, the ‘Snowdogs Discover Ashford’ App includes a brand new pedometer feature sponsored by Active Ashford allowing app players to track their steps, distance and time on the trail, as well as collect Snowdogs and unlock paw-some rewards along the way.

Chris Dixon, Arts and Cultural Industries Manager at Ashford Borough Council, commented

“This event has been a year in the planning and has already captured the imagination of local business, artists and school children. Now that the secret is out, we hope that everyone will get involved in this free trail and be a part of this spectacular experience around Ashford.”

We can’t wait for the ‘Snowdogs Discover Ashford’ art trail and hope to see many familiar faces on our fourth Snowdog Art Trail since 2016.
