What is BunFest?

BunFest was created by Rabbit Rescue Inc. as an educational exposition and fundraiser. Our aim is to educate pet rabbit owners regarding everything related to bunny guardianship and offer advice, information and support. Throughout our venue you will find all kinds of fantastic and fun areas of interest, so take your time to explore them all!
BunFest is geared specifically towards rabbits that are house pets.  BunFest does not endorse, support or recommend the breeding or showing of rabbits.  Our Event and information focuses on keeping your rabbit happy and healthy in a loving home environment – we believe rabbits deserve to be part of the family!

How much is admission?

Admission to BunFest is $8, with 100% of the proceeds going to help the animals in Rabbit Rescue’s care.

Can I bring my bunny?

Of course!  There are lots of fun things for you to do with your bunny at BunFest, however, please take a few things into consideration.  While we would love to see you and your rabbit at BunFest, please keep in mind that this event can be crowded, noisy and stressful for some bunnies.  No one knows your bunny as well as you do so if you think that BunFest might be too much for your rabbit to handle, please leave them at home.  Make sure you pick up lots of bunny stuff to make it up to them!  Please refer to our BunFest Rules for additional information.

What is happening throughout the day?

We have a BunSpa, Glamour Shots, bunny merchandise, a bunny cafe and lounge, a silent auction, special guests and vendors and so much more!  Also, please see below for a list of events and seminars happening throughout the day that you won’t want to miss!
