Pet Fest educates and entertains the public about the wonderful world of pets. It’s a day filled with family oriented events featuring entertainment, contests, special attractions and pet adoptions. Pet Fest is also an outstanding shopping venue of products and services pertaining to pets and families. There are many pet adoption agencies participating with on-site adoptable animals so bring the family and meet your new best friend! Pet Fest will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019 from 10am until 3pm at the Missoula County Fairgrounds, Missoula’s most diverse center for events. In addition to hosting the Western Montana Fair each summer, the Missoula County Fairgrounds is home to some of the most exciting expositions and events in western Montana, including Pet Fest! Admission is free but we strongly urge participants to bring a bag of new pet food to help us feed homeless animals. Please drop food at the front entrance to Pet Fest. All donations will be distributed to the shelters at the end of the event. Mutts and Wieners will compete in the tournament style event on a short course on the grass at Pet Fest. Depending on the number of entrants, the top finishers of each heat will compete against each other for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in their category. It’s fun, competitive racing like you’ve never seen before! Dozens of tiny wiener dogs and mini mutts racing for prizes and glory to round off the end of Pet Fest! If you’ve never attended the Wiener Dog Dash, get ready to have your heart melt from the sheer cuteness of it all! Visit with pet rescue organizations and local shelters from Western Montana. Support their fund-raising efforts by buying some of their fun and unique pet items. You’ll discover education on behavior issues, choosing the right pet and more. Bring the whole family and find a new forever friend from the pets for adoption right at Pet Fest!
