26th Annual Pets in the Park
June 24, 2018 at Hawrelak Park
Edmonton’s official Pet Festival is back for it's 26th year! This is the only day of the year that Hawrelak Park opens up to our furry, feathered and scaly friends. On Sunday, June 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., bring your whole family (four-legged members included!) for sun, fun and a dog-gone good time!
Walk or Fun Run
You can help give animals a second chance by taking part in the festival’s walk or fun run. Each year, people like you continue to show your love and support for animals in need by raising much-needed funds. These funds give homeless, abandoned and neglected companion animals the medical care, treatment and love they need.
This year there will be a “K9” km fun run as well as the Tail Blazers 2.5 km walk. All registrants will receive unique race swag and fundraising efforts are rewarded with exciting prizes. We're also thrilled to have Edmonton Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot and his wife Kelly as our Walk Marshals! Join Cam and Kelly by registering today - create your own team, join an existing team, or sign up as an individual, and help the thousands of animals that come through our doors to leave with new, loving families.
Through our pledge-driven 2.5 km walk and "K9" km fun run, people of all ages help raise crucial funds that help give hope and new homes to countless animals in need. Be part of the tradition!
Can't do the walk or run this year? You can still support the event by making a pledge and helping animals in need.
What's Happening at Pets in the Park?
This family-friendly event offers something for everyone, including four-legged family members and young animal lovers – and it’s home to Edmonton’s only all-ages, pet friendly beer garden! We're planning some fur-tastic activities for the 2018 Pets in the Park that's paws-itively guaranteed to provide fun for the whole pack! Please check back for details, or take a look back at this recap from last year for an idea of what we have in store!
Bringing Your Pet
Just a reminder that all pets must be properly restrained at all times (on a leash or in a carrier). For the safety of our human and animal guests, retractable leashes are NOT allowed.
