Pickering Petapolooza, Pickering ON

Petapolooza – Pickering’s Pet Festival is back!

On Saturday May 13, 2023, Petapolooza kicks off the beginning of our yearlong events. This event has grown in the last few years to be one of the City’s largest outdoor events and attendance has more than doubled in the last 3 years. This year we are moving the event to a larger outdoor space as we anticipate continued growth.

Petapolooza brings together pet owners and enthusiasts within our community. It gives our community the opportunity to meet industry professionals, rescue groups, and others in the pet industry.


Admission is $5, with free admission for seniors 55+, children under 12, and pets. All proceeds from Petapolooza go towards helping us build a permanent animal shelter. Along with entertainment and vendor booths, there are plenty of giveaways and activities for the whole family!

In 2019 we were able to raise over $20,000 in admissions, partner/sponsors, exhibitor fees and additional donations all relating to this event. We hope to exceed this amount this year!

Event Lineup

You can expect to see around 5,000+ attendees, and over 50 exhibitors and rescue groups. There will be plenty of giveaways including pet bandanas, games, food samples, water stations for your pet, live entertainment for the whole family and more!

Don’t miss the SuperDogs preforming at 11am, 1 pm and 3pm
