SHREWSBURY – The Pet Rock Fest has found a new home.

After spending the past few years in Grafton, and going virtual in 2022, this 25th annual event for pets and pet-lovers alike will be heading to SAC Park on Sunday, Sept. 10, from noon to 5 p.m.

The festival spotlights animal welfare organizations throughout New England, such as rescue organizations and shelters.

The park includes two pavilions, a main building and hundreds of parking spaces.

Features will include live music, an agility course, children’s activities, the Pups in the Air disc dog team, a photo contest, book signings, animal mascots, doggie massages, free and low-cost microchipping and rabies shots and a doggie water park.

There will also be a vegetarian food court.

Anyone interested in volunteering for, performing at, or taking part in the festival in any way (including vendors and sponsors) should contact [email protected].
