Pickering - Petapalooza 2020
September 19, 2020 –
On Sept 19, 2020 as part of Responsible Pet Ownership Month, the City of Pickering will host the 9th Annual Petapolooza - Pickering's Outdoor Pet Festival.
Petapolooza brings together pet enthusiasts within our community and gives them an opportunity to meet industry professionals, rescue groups, and others in the pet industry.
Admission is $5, with free admission for seniors 55+, children under 12, and pets. All proceeds will go towards helping us build a permanent animal shelter.
Last year we were able to raise over $20,000 in admissions, sponsors, exhibitor fees and additional donations all relating to this event. Donations of over $20 are eligible for a tax receipt.
