About Us

Meet the team

They are a bunch of animal lovers who decided to volunteer their time and expertise to create a fun, pet-friendly event that celebrates the love people have for their furry, feathery,  scaly best-friends. ❤️🐦🐷🐴🐶😸🐍❤️

It all started with Beth A. who thought it would be fun to organize her own outdoor festival for Cornwall’s families and their pets.

The event had to support local pet businesses and local rescues.  It also had to be fun for all, while keeping eco-friendly initiatives.♻️

Beth N., Emily, and Cristian loved Beth’s crazy, ambitious ideas so they decided to team up to bring Cornwall’s Very First Outdoor Pet Festival.

Unleash Pet Photography, Urroz, and WAGS Canine Retreat with their pets.
