On Saturday, September 22, 2018, the 4th annual Critter Carnival (formerly Furry Friends Festival) will be held at Southern Community Park in Chapel Hill, NC to raise awareness and funds for numerous local animal rescue and rehabilitation charities. From 10am to 2pm you can meet and learn about a wide variety of animals, including owls, turtles, fawns, kittens, possums, raptors, snakes, birds of prey, adoptable puppies & dogs and much more!

We’ll also have amazing circus artists such as hula hoopers and stilt walkers, animal-related vendors, arts & crafts vendors, Maple View ice cream, lemonade and a photo booth. We’ll also have an online silent auction for lots of great items. Tickets and parking are FREE!
