Sydney Cat Lovers Festival 2023!

August 26, 2023 @ 9:30 am - August 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm AEST


Come celebrate everything that’s cool about Cats at the first major festival in Sydney dedicated to educating and entertaining feline-fanatics in a truly memorable way.

The inaugural Sydney Cat Lovers Festival promises to be the perfect fur-fix for every feline fan and purr-some fun for everyone!

It runs concurrently with the Dog Lovers Festival on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August 2023 at Sydney Showground, creating one of the largest pet celebrations in the world.

Interact with 200+ rare, pedigree and companion breeds across an array of feline-inspired attractions including the Trouble & Trix Breed Showcase, Breed Information Stage, Pat-A-Cat, and the Whiskas Adoption Zone with litters of reputable Breeders taking part too.

Pounce on educational tips for a happier, healthier feline on the Whiskas Stage featuring Dr Katrina Warren, America’s Official ‘Cat Daddy’ Jackson Galaxy live via satellite from LA, plus CATMANTOO with his cat Didga who is one of the most talented and popular cats in the world!

It’s also a big supermarket for cat owners with new products, show specials and cat friendly beds, doors, food, insurers, enclosures, litter, harnesses, towers, collars, tech, toys, treats, photographers, retailers, scratchers, vets and more…

Plus, there’s a Championship Cat Show from ANCATS and the NSW Cat Fanciers Association members, a Purrfect Match zone, Kitty Cosplay dress-up parade (and competition for visitors to win prizes!), free Kitty Face Painting, live kids’ entertainment from Hello Kitty and lots more.

Kitty-lovers finally have their own feline-focussed-festival where they can unite to proclaim their love for these wonderful creatures and immerse themselves in all things feline. Once you’ve got your ticket, everything to see and do is FREE making it one of the best value days out in Sydney!

Click here to discover all the purrr-some attractions and tickets will most likely sell-out like they do in Melbourne, so pounce on yours early to avoid sour-puss syndrome!
