Pet Rock Fest, the largest animal benefit of its kind in New England, is celebrating more than 15 years of helping animals. And also a big move.
The festival, happening on Sunday, Sept. 7, from noon to 5 p.m., moves to the Sturbridge Host Hotel, 366 Main Street, Sturbridge.
Pet Rock Fest features live music (bands to be announced later this summer), a vegetarian food court, games for kids, contests for dogs, a cat photo contest, photos with your pets, 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. It is important to remember that Pet Rock Fest benefits all animals – not just pets.
Not only will Pet Rock Fest still offer the same favorites, such as the vegetarian food court, Frisbee dogs, agility course, adoptable pet parade, dog contest and cat contest, but the new venue offers some new options, including Pet Rock Beach, where your dog can take a dip in the lake. Yes, you heard it right. Your dog can go swimming!
The Sturbridge Host Hotel is conveniently located right off of the Massachusetts Turnpike, and offers plenty of parking. It is also a dog friendly hotel, and attendees will be offered special rates to stay at the hotel.
Much more information is coming. Pass along the word and plan to attend Pet Rock Fest.
