An A-meowzing Festival!

I was PURR-oud to help bring to Edmonton its first-ever cat festival in 2014. This festival celebrates cats, cat people, and cat culture, while raising money for local cat rescues. There are cat-themed presentations, activities, local vendors, crafts, videos, photo contests, adoptable & show cats, and so meow-ch more. Over 3,000 people attended the last festival in 2017, which I felt clearly showed the importance of having niche festivals and gatherings in the city. I hope there are more of these special festivals (not just cat-related!) that appeal to specific interests taking place in Edmonton in the future. Although the fest has since moved away from the location listed here, we had three very a-meowzing years in this spot and I hope the festival was and continues to be as meaningful to all its attendees as it has been for me.
