Pet lovers, pet parents, pets and their families are gearing up for the summer 2018 debut of the Salt Lake City Pet Expo. The first annual event is being held at the Golden Spike Event Center, and opens to the public on Saturday, July 14th, 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM, and Sunday, July 15th, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The event is free to the public and pets are welcomed and encouraged to attend!

“After having significant success in cities like Denver, Phoenix and Las Vegas, we decided that Salt Lake would be another logical location and strong addition to the lineup in 2018,” says Ethan Barnett, Vice President of Events. “We have heard wonderful things about the pet communities in Utah and are excited to make a new set of friends and pets.”

Similar to other expos across the country, the expo will feature a huge mega-adoption event with a variety of adoptable pets that are looking for a new forever friend. Attendees can also enjoy a variety of features including live presentations on the Entertainment Stage, pet contests, free nail trims, low-cost vaccinations, and high energy events such as flyball, lure coursing and dock diving.

Organizers expect to offer over 80 vendor booths featuring various unique pet products, pet clothing and accessories, pet treats, and more. In addition, attendees can learn about exotic animals and wildlife conservation as well as local rescue organizations and how they can help save, foster, adopt or care for local animals in need.

“A huge part of our initiative is to help people become better pet companions,” says Barnett. “We’re so ecstatic to shine the spotlight on Salt Lake City to highlight the local pet scene and those doing amazing work within the community.”

The indoor, and air-conditioned Salt Lake City Pet Expo expects to attract 7-8,000 attendees along with their furry, feathered, and reptilian pals, looking to enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience, where all pets can enjoy a fun day or two out on the town with their pet parent(s). All well-behaved pets are welcome, as long as they’re on a fixed lead (or in a carrier) and have proof of age-appropriate rabies vaccines.
