The Cat Video Festival is back!

The Twin Cities experienced its first cat video festival in 2012 and became an international hit. It is in that spirit that we bring back the Cat Video Festival on August 9th 2016 at 6pm at CHS Field. Tickets are on sale now.

Last year over 13,000 cat lovers attended the festival. This year’s Cat Video Festival will benefit Wags & Whiskers Animal Rescue of MN.

Countless hours will be spent to bring The Cat Video Festival back home to the Twin Cities.

Because… cats.
