Meet Archie Brindleton!

Come meet London’s official “ASSISTANT FIRE CHIEF” and FIRE SAFETY DOG, ARCHIE BRINDLETON! Archie will be at his favourite festival for much of the day, enjoying the many events and activities with his friends and younger sister Mirabelle and will be appearing at a meet and greet spot in his dress uniform at scheduled times!

Archie is a 4 year old French Bulldog known as the “puppy gentleman” who works as a therapy dog for several groups around London and is the in-house therapy dog for Western Engineering. He has also earned the title of “Parkmaster General” and has visited and reviewed a record number of parks (over 550). He has a considerable following on social media (over 14K on Facebook alone) and was the only dog ever to be invited to City Council Chambers to be recognized by the Mayor! He is super-handsome, super-flubbery and he wants to be your friend!! Come find out why folks have come from as far away as St. Louis and even Australia to meet him!

For Vendors: Registration is now open! Please contact Marianne Levogiannis at mlevogiannis@fanshawepioneervillage.ca for further details.
