Purrfectly Pawesome Yas Pet Festival

Hey Abu Dhabi families, it’s time to primp your pets and promenade them for pet lovers from around the city to see! The purrfectly pawsome Yas Pet Festival returns 14 February

Time to tame that mane and clip those talons! The annual Yas Pet Festival is back and better than ever. Prepare to fall back in love with your furry and fluffy friends this Valentine’s Day on Yas Island.

More than 8,000 two-legged visitors are expected to attend, plus their pets making this year’s Pet Festival potentially record-breaking. A highlight of the event is the Pet Fashion Show, so Yalla suggests you practise your strut on the catwalk in preparation for the big day.

Other family favourites include a fancy dress competition for pets and their owners, the Police K9 Unit demonstrations, the 7th World Kennel Union All Breeds Championship Dog Show, a thoroughly revamped Ultimate Kids Zone (includes trampolines, bouncy slides, arts & crafts, face painting and more), dog agility competition, an educational farm, the Abu Dhabi Cat Show, obstacle courses, and pet cooling stations with water and puppy pools for your furry water babies.

Bring your family and all your furry best friends to the Pet Festival. All pets are welcome so long as they are accompanied by a loving human or two. Pet love is in the air this Valentine’s Day!


The event is free to attend for humans and animals and runs on 14 February 2020 at du Arena, Yas Island from 1pm to 9pm. For more information, please visit

Friday, 14 February 2019, 1-9 pm, du Arena, Yas Island


Pets will all be inspected by vets upon entry and given a neck ribbon according to level of calmness. (Green indicates pet me, Yellow indicates ask my owner, Red indicates please do not pet me). Parents love this feature of the Festival that helps kids understand the needs of their animal companions.
