Does my Cat Lovers Festival ticket entitle me entry into the Dog Lovers Festival?
It sure does!
To celebrate the first Cat Lovers Festival in Brisbane we have decided that all cat owners, who also love dogs, can enter the Brisbane Dog Lovers Festival with the same ticket!
That’s 2 great Festivals for the price of 1.
Please note you much enter both Festivals on the same day.
What were the Festival opening times?
9:30am to 5pm daily
Can I bring my cat?
We love all Cats but an event such as this is not a suitable environment to allow visitors to bring their Cats. But when you get home they will be so happy to see you, as you’ll be loaded with treats and toys for them. You’ll also know so much more about them thanks to all the expert talks and presentations!
For more information regarding this policy, please click here.
Please note: It’s a fact that most cats don’t like being in big noisy places for long. Those that do are a rare breed! That said, you will find a healthy cast of beautiful cats at the Festival, just not hundreds and hundreds (unlike our Dog Lovers Festival)! We always put cat welfare first so your understanding here is much appreciated, as is your assistance in taking direction from the cat handlers at the Festival.
Thanks in advance and we can’t wait to welcome you to the Festival!
