Petapolooza - Pickering's Pet Festival

On May 9, 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

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.

Location - New for 2020!!

Alex Robertson Park, 700 Sandy Beach Road (view Google map). Alex Robertson Park is located south of Bayly and is across from Kinsmen Park. From Liverpool Road, go south to Bayly and turn left (east) and drive until you see Sandy Beach Road. Turn right (south) and drive until you see the park on the right hand side. Parking is in the Kinsmen lot on the left.
