With the weekend Carrara Markets also happening onsite, there's plenty of food and drinks available throughout.

Need to Know – It is recommended that cat owners do not bring their pets to the carnival, as the crowds, other cats and noise are not conducive to their well-being. Entry is free and there is free parking onsite.

Nice to know – The Cat Carnival was created by self-confessed cat lover Mia Lee. “The over whelming success of last year’s first ever Cat Carnival proved there’s a gap in pet orientated events. There’s never been a stand-alone cat event until the Cat Carnival and cat people are ecstatic!”
