Cat Fest Book Club Cat Fest Week

Join fellow cat and book lovers for an ameowzing cat themed book club for Cat Fest Week 2023. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to Cat Fest to support this year’s rescue recipient, Furget Me Not Animal Rescue.

We will be reading “The Travelling Cat Chronicles” by Hiro Arikawa and discussing the book and our love of cats at the Glass Bookshop.

We’ll bring some rescue cats to spend the night with us too!

As we want to give book club purrticipants time to read their book, and we need to order the books, there is an earlier deadline associated with this event.

If you are interested in joining Cat Fest Book Club this May, please register by April 24, 2023. ** Registration extended to May 5, 2023 **

About The Travelling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa

An instant and international bestseller, The Travelling Cat Chronicles has charmed readers around the world. With simple yet descriptive prose, this novel gives voice to Nana the cat and his owner, Satoru, as they take to the road on a journey with no other purpose than to visit three of Satoru’s longtime friends. Or so Nana is led to believe… With his crooked tail–a sign of good fortune–and adventurous spirit, Nana is the perfect companion for the man who took him in as a stray. As they travel in a silver van across Japan, with its ever-changing scenery and seasons, they will learn the true meaning of courage and gratitude, of loyalty and love.

2023 Cat Fest Week
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 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 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!

There will be an event a day and we’ll ameownce our full Cat Fest Week event line-up over the next few weeks!

We’ll also be encouraging you to take advantage of Cat-themed promotions across the city during Cat Fest Week. 

Edmonton Cat Fest Week runs May 20 – 28, 2023!

with in-purrson and / or virtual events each day

Stay tuned for more Cat Fest Week event info!

  • As this year’s event is multiple small events rather than one large event, our vendor space is much more limited. We will be in touch with those who have emailed to express interest in being a vendor with more details when we have finalized vendor opportunity!
