The festival combines educational and entertaining activities to help raise awareness on animal welfare and will educate visitors on all aspects related to pets. Owners will get to learn about the latest pet products, food, pet health and more.

Visitors can also take the little ones to the kids’ zone where there are a number of various games, slides and jumping castles as well as indulge in an array of food and drink kiosks.

Before you head over…

All pets will need to have their passports and vaccination report. They will also undergo a temperament assessment to see if they are a good boy or girl before they enter the venue. A red, yellow or green ribbon will be attached to their harness or collar which must be worn at all times inside the venue. Dogs will have to be on a leash at all times (no extendable leashes allowed).

The pet festival opens its doors to more than just dogs, so cats are welcomed too but in a cat carrier.
