What to expect:

Purrformance Stage

There will be a number of presentations and shows taking place throughout the day. Guests can learn more about feline health, tips and other informative information to best care for your furry friend.

Fashion-forward attendees can also strut their stuff on the catwalk in a feline fashion contest.  Showcase your favorite cat-themed apparel and makeup, and the best-dressed contestant will win.

Meet and Greet 

One of the highlights of the event is the opportunity to meet famous internet cats in person. Bodhi the adventure cat, Teddy the tabby, and Snapple, who was born with wobbly cat syndrome, will all be there for a free Meet and Greet session.

The event will also feature various themed photo opportunities, with larger-than-life cat cut-outs.  Along with a marketplace with over 40 vendors, and food trucks.

World Breaking Record

Meowfest will also be aiming to break the record for the world’s biggest fur ball. Cat owners are encouraged to bring their pet’s fur balls to contribute to this record-breaking attempt. Afterward, all the collected fur will be donated to organizations supporting environmental and wildlife causes.
