Bring your pets along to The Big BBQ Social

Get barbecuing the way you want with communal grill stations

Get ready for a dog day afternoon filled with smoky grill smells as the Big BBQ Social is back for its second season.

You can bring the family (as well as that beloved pet of yours) a day in the sun on Friday April 27 at The Secret Garden in Jumeirah Creekside Hotel.

Visitors can BBQ at one of the communal wood and charcoal stations set up on the green grass, meaning everyone can bring meats that suit their fancy to fire up their own way.

While you get your grill on, set your dog free to make some new friends in the doggie play zone supervised by professional staff from My Second Home.

There’s even grooming on offer from Pets in the City to get your dog looking in top form Animal lovers will also get the chance to play with adorable puppies from K9 Friends, SNIFF, and 38 if you’re needing a furry cuddle.

Has a dog nicked your food? Don’t fret, there will be a gourmet butcher on site for supplies.

Kids will have their plates full too with plenty of games, arts and craft to keep them busy throughout the day, so parents can kick back and have a nice and chilly beverage.

Charl Chaka, The Big BBQ Social Founder, said: “Following our successful launch last year, we’ve received plenty of requests and encouragement from the pet-loving community.

“We welcome all members of the family including our beloved pets. Thanks to our partners, we can bring everyone together again in a new luscious green playground with a relaxed, friendly at-mosphere before the summer kicks in.”
