Pet Fest

Launched in 2006, Pet Fest is well known for the Wiener Dog Dash that attracts thousands to watch dozens of tiny wiener dogs 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!

Attendees experience events designed to be interactive, entertaining and fun. Pet lovers are able to discover new products, information and ideas. Our goal is to provide value and entertainment for all. Whiskers twitch, tails thump and paws knead in the Pet Fest Adoption Row.  The one constant with all of these adoptable darlings is that they are looking for a forever home with a loving companion.  Each year Pet Fest is proud to be a part of this process. With the help of the tireless volunteers who give their time and energy to find homes for these homeless pets we hope to be more successful each year in our quest to further the human animal bond. Looking for a loving companion?  Here’s a great place to start.

Exhibitors at Pet Fest benefit by being able to connect with consumers on a personal level. This creates an opportunity not only for sales, but to build relationships and loyalty. This interaction is perfect for launching new products, sampling and getting your product into the hands of potential consumers.

Sponsors maximize the personal marketing aspect of the Health and Wellness Fair, Pet Fest and the Women’s Fair with their higher profile role. In addition to the personal marketing opportunities of having a booth at the event, attendees regard a sponsor as a “host” for a memorable experience.

These in-depth and interpersonal marketing occasions are exceptional. The value added opportunities a sponsor enjoys create a lasting impression and strengthens their long-term relationship with the audience.

As a company, it’s our mission to provide supportive opportunities for small businesses, entrepreneurial endeavors, companies large and small as well private parties. We want to provide a value to attendees and make a positive impact in everything we do. We spend much time considering the different perspectives of the attendees, the vendors and clients. With this in mind, we create a community within our events.
