Pet Rock Fest for the first time, takes place in the field at Wyman-Gordon in North Grafton, held on Sunday, Sept. 10, 2017, from noon to 5 p.m.
With a move to this centrally-located and expansive venue, the event is sure to expand in numerous ways, drawing more attendees and participants.
Tickets (at the gate) are $12 for adults and $5 for kids 12 and under. There will be $2 off coupons located in various locations before the event.
The event features all of the popular attractions, but will include additions to our offerings: from food to vendors to events to nonprofit participation. And, of course, Pet Rock Fest continues to put the spotlight on the animal welfare organizations of New England that work hard to promote kindness to animals.
Wyman-Gordon is eager to host the fest, and is welcoming Pet Rock Fest enthusiastically, as is the town of Grafton. Located conveniently to the Mass. Pike, Route 30, Route 146 and Route 122, the venue is super accessible from points east, west, north and south. Also, the venue offers a large, grassy, fenced-in event area, and thousands of parking spaces right on the premises. It is ideal for both people and animals.
Since Pet Rock Fest lost its venue at Quinsigamond Community College four years ago, the organization has been searching for a site that is centrally located and easy to access, with plenty of onsite parking.
There is plenty of space, and beyond, to bring back all of our attractions, including K9 demos, an agility course, the Frisbee dog team, live music, the Adoptable Pet Parade, Amateur Dog Contest, vegetarian vendors and our wonderful sponsors and animal welfare organizations.
Pet Rock Fest features live music, performances and games for kids, author signings, Pups in the Air Frisbee Dog Team, doggie massages, photos of your pets, animal mascots, vegetarian food court, games for kids, contests for dogs, a cat photo contest, doggie massages, a doggie water park, demonstrations, exhibits, vendors and, most importantly, hundreds of nonprofit groups devoted to animal welfare causes. All animals.
Pet Rock Fest gives its proceeds to worthy animal related charities that support a variety of causes, from shelters to law reform to farm animal sanctuaries.
Celebrating more than 18 years, Pet Rock Fest is the largest event of its kind in the Northeast, an annual festival that promotes kindness to animals and responsible pet ownership. Pet Rock Fest, held in September each year, is a family festival that features guest speakers, vegetarian food, live music, games, events, a raffle, vendors, and hundreds of area animal welfare organizations. Pet Rock is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. Donations are tax deductible.
