Please join us in welcoming new committee members!
James (they/them) is excited about all-things cats and jigsaw puzzles, and even more excited about jigsaw puzzles of cats. They love a good murder mystery and aspire to have as much confidence as their cat.
Lisa (she/her) has two cats Jack and Loki, whom she attempted to create an Instagram page for. Her dream is to open up a cat cafe and retire by a beach. When Lisa isn’t taking care of kitties she takes care of people as a Respiratory Therapist.
Since the beginning, the Edmonton Cat Festival has operated thanks to a very small but dedicated volunteer team.
We’ve always been purrr-oud of what we’ve been able to accomplish with our tiny team:
Since 2014, the festival has raised $146,000 for local rescues
Pre-pandemic, in-person events saw up to 3,000 cat loving purrticipants attend
Our virtual events brought together hundreds of cat lovers from nearly 100 locations around the world
- Our festival line-ups are pawsitively ameowzing! Interactive, educational, and so meowch fun
James and Lisa join existing members Linda Hoang, Shereen Zink, Amanda McCloy and Samantha Callaghan in putting on ameowzing cat events that celebrate cats, cat culture and cat people while raising lots of money to support cat rescues!
The Edmonton Cat Festival is always open to adding more cat loving board members to our volunteer team. We seek different members for different positions and we also need a lot of day-of event volunteers!
