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.
