This year’s 2023 Edmonton Cat Festival is a WEEK of events! 
Rather than one big in-purrson event, this year we are hosting multiple, smaller cat-themed events from May 20, 2023 to May 28, 2023 as part of the first-ever Edmonton Cat Fest WEEK presented by Homes Alive Pets. 100% of purr-ceeds will be donated to Furget Me Not Animal Rescue. Since 2014, the Edmonton Cat Fest has donated $130,000 to local rescues. 
Register or Donate to Win!​

All ticket registrants and festival donors in the month of May will be entered for a chance to win a Cuddle Session with Kittens!

If you register for a ticketed Cat Fest Week event or make an online donation to Cat Fest in the month of May, you will be entered to win a Cuddle Session / Night with Kittens from Furget Me Not Animal Rescue. They’ll bring adorable kittens to you and a group of friends for a cuddle session / hang-out.

Since 2014, the Edmonton International Cat Festival has held a cat pawty to celebrate cats, cat people and cat culture, while raising money for cat rescues helping cats in need (donating $130,000 for local rescues!) Since 2020 we have hosted virtual events due to the pandemic. 

While the 2023 in-purrson events will be smaller in scale than our typical one-day pawties, 100% of purr-ceeds raised from events and sponsors will continue to be donated to a local rescue helping cats in need. This year’s selected donation recipient is Furget Me Not!

We’ll also be encouraging you to take advantage of Cat-themed promotions across the city as part of the Cat Fest Week Cat Pawspurrt!
