The Edmonton International Cat Festival is the only festival of its kind in Canada, bringing together cat lovers to celebrate cats and cat culture, while raising money and awareness for important cat rescue organizations!

#YEGCatFest donates 100% of proceeds back to local rescue organizations.

Since 2014, they’ve raised $60,000 for local rescues helping cats in need.

Their mission is to put on an event that brings together cat lovers from all over, to celebrate cats, cat culture, and raise money and awareness to support organizations that help cats in need, organizations like the Edmonton Humane Society, Little Cats Lost, Safe Team Rescue, and Zoe’s Animal Rescue!

The 2018 event takes place on May 26th in the Robbins Health Learning Centre at MacEwan University.
