For 2023, the Edmonton International Cat Festival is returning to not just one in-purrson event, but hosting multiple cat-themed events from May 20, 2023 to May 28, 2023, as part of the first-ever 2023 Edmonton Cat Fest Week presented by Homes Alive Pets.
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 events will be smaller in scale than our typical one-day pawties, 100% of purr-ceeds raised from events and festival sponsors will continue to be donated to a local rescue helping cats in need. This year’s selected donation recipient is Furget Me Not!
There will be an event a day and we’ll ameownce our full Cat Fest Week event line-up soon (including a Celebrity Cat Meet & Greet!)
We’ll also be encouraging you to take advantage of Cat-themed promotions across the city during Cat Fest Week!
In the meantime, SAVE THE DATES and stay tuned for more details!
Edmonton Cat Fest Week runs May 20 – 28, 2023!
