meowfest 2023 Toronto

meowfest 2023 is a full-day festival full of food, fun and felines! You don’t want to miss this cat-stravaganza of music, events, prizes, ice cold adult beverages, and shopping! Check out our adoption area with amazing rescues, or just come to see the celebrity cats at their meet and greets! Best of all, all event proceeds are donated directly to local shelters, to help out our furry friends, so come out and support your community and join the purrty! Since our first event in 2018, we have raised $64,350 for shelter kitties!

What's included?

The following event features are included with all ticket types. No additional tickets needed!


Get the opportunity to meowt local famous cats for free! Featuring up close and purrsonal meet & greets with our famous cat friends who make us laugh and bring us pawsitivity. You’ll get the chance to meet their humans, take pictures and maybe even give them a pawsome high five.


Take your love of cats to the next level by attending any of these insightful and educational interactive presentations on our speaker stage.


We’re here to celebrate cats but just like our feline furriends, we love our food and drinks. You will have access to delicious local food, alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, vegan options, and some surprise snacks.


Come spoil your fur babies and yourself by shopping at our marketplace. We’ve gathered 40 + vendors for your shopping pleasure. Bring an extra tote bag!


See cats & tiny kittens! The Toronto Cat Rescue will be at meowfest with kitties in Adoptable Kitty Corner. Our mission is to change these kitties’ lives, so whether you’re looking to adopt or just see some very cute cats, we know you’ll make their day.


Take photos with larger-than-life-sized cat cut outs & with our human size cat tree. We’ve discovered there’s a way to get up close and personal with our cats and that’s through becoming one of them! We’ve created a human size interactive cat tree, so you can feel just like your kitty on top of the world. It might sound weird and we are here for it.


Connect with other cat lovers in our community by playing our event scavenger game, get a temporary cat tattoo, help us paint a kitten mural, participate in our speed dating session by (meee-ow!) and more.


Are you ready to be part of hisstory? At meowfest 2023 in Toronto & Vancouver we are aiming to break records with the world’s biggest fur ball! This is your chance to bring a piece of your cat to meowfest and be a part of something truly unique! You might think we’re joking but we aren’t kitten around. Imagine the pride you’ll feel when you see your cat’s fur become a part of this record-setting accomplishment. Let’s get grooming! All collected fur will be donated to organizations that support environmental and wildlife causes. Find out more here on how to participate.
