A "Paws" in the Fun...

Pet Fair 2020

The Coon Rapids Love My Pet Fair will not take place in 2020. The event, originally scheduled for Saturday, September 19, 2020 at Riverview Park, has been canceled after much consideration among members of the planning committee. Based upon the planning and organizing required for the event, combined with public health recommendations surrounding large gatherings due to COVID-19, and feedback received from many of the past vendors and participants, it has been determined to cancel the 2020 event and focus on the event for 2021. This also means the Rabies Clinic will not occur in 2020; it will return in 2021 at the Coon Rapids Love My Pet Fair event in September. 

Survey results showed many vendors did not want to participate in 2020 due to the ongoing pandemic and nearly everyone felt public attendance would be down significantly at the event compared to typical years. But the good news is nearly every vendor would like to return in 2021. 

The Coon Rapids Love My Pet Fair features products, services and educational information related to responsible pet ownership. Demonstrations, contests, live music and food also round out the event to create a fun atmosphere for pet owners and their pets. The City of Coon Rapids combined its Rabies Clinic, with the Pet Fair in 2019, to offer a convenient way to not only allow pet owners to receive vaccinations for their pets, but also attend the Pet Fair at the same time. This concept will return in 2021, where both events take place at the same location.
